Rather than focusing on just one academic discipline, students undertake interdisciplinary study in science, technology (applied technology), and business (economics and management). This enables students to gain the ability to scientifically study life, the environment, and society, and to learn skills and knowledge related to food and agriculture.
By mastering various academic disciplines, students will become generalists sought after by the food industry.
Realizing an integrated education with faculty members at the forefront of their respective fields.
Students undertake specialized education and research lead by professors at the forefront of the food, agriculture, and business fields.
With 20% of our professors bringing with them business experience in private enterprises such as major food manufacturers, students can develop knowledge and skills that can be put to use in the real world.
Producing generalists with a high level of expertise in relation to food and agriculture.
The food chain is a continuous connection from the table to production, processing, distribution, and sales. Personnel who have overall expertise and understanding of the food chain in conjunction with their respective specialized knowledge and skills are indispensable in the Japanese food industry.
At Niigata Agro-Food University we cultivate generalists for the food industry who have advanced technical knowledge and skills, combined with general knowledge and skills related to food, agriculture, and business. This is manifested by interlocking the common course providing general studies about the food chain with courses designed to heighten expertise in their respective areas of food, agriculture, and business.
Research and development is undertaken with a market-in approach in order to realize the respective needs in each area, with a focus on meeting the food safety and security requirements sought after by consumers as well as meeting market needs.
Based on this concept, at Niigata Agro-Food University we are creating a new food industry by undertaking research and development that will contribute to society and lead to the development of new businesses and regional revitalization, as well as enabling the resolution of food and agricultural issues related to the industry.
Students gain useful skills and practical knowledge through collaboration with society, corporations, and the community.
We have developed a curriculum that incorporates many off-campus lessons in collaboration with major corporations and research institutes in the food industry, business men and women on the front-line, and regions flourishing in food production, marketing, and sales.
By learning in connection with the real world, students are constantly acquiring the latest techniques and knowledge and gaining practical skills.
Promoting cooperation with industry, government, and academia and supporting job hunting through an integrated collaboration with society.
At Niigata Agro-Food University, we collaborate closely with the community and industry.
By strengthening our ties to society we can provide joint development, internships, and off-campus lessons as well as support for job hunting that meets the needs of each and every student.
Expanding the possibilities for your future through two internships.
Internships are offered twice, once in the first year and once in the third year of study.
From an early stage in your university life, we aim to heighten your image of future employment opportunities in the food industry field so that you can concentrate on your studies with a high sense of purpose.
Students experience the food industry through various farms, food production and processing plants, wholesale markets, food sales outlets, and agricultural ventures to understand and get a feel for the role that they could play in society. This greatly expands the possibilities for students in the future.
We offer full support for the four years of study for each and every student who has a dream to be active in the food industry.
Caring support is provided not only for students treading the waters in their first experience of university life, but also for any concerns and questions students may have regarding their studies or living alone.
In addition, guidance is provided from first year so that each student can realize their goal for their future career path.
Detailed instruction in small-group seminars.
Academic and student life are supported through small-group seminars in first and second year.
The bonds both between students, and with faculty members and the local community, are strengthened through small-group work and field work in the community.
Study support for student’s weaker subjects.
Support is offered for subjects students struggled with during their high school career, as well as subjects not previously studied. Classes are divided so that lessons meet each student’s level and provide thorough study support.
Career education that supports your search for a job.
We work with students from first year to provide career education in preparation for the job hunting process.
By offering career education from an early stage, we boost the capability of all students to proactively choose their own future.
Students also gain knowledge that becomes the foundation to generate a new value and develop a heightened awareness of how to play a vital role in the next generation of the food industry.
In the Faculty of Agro-Food Science, students study food, agriculture, and business comprehensively to gain a full understanding of the food chain, which is indispensable to the development of food industries in the future.
Throughout their four years, students study common subjects to gain an overall understanding of the food industry. In addition to continuing studies and research relating to food in general from second year, students will acquire specialized knowledge and skills from three course programs.
Through interdisciplinary study in science, technology (applied technology) and business (economics and management) rather than just one academic discipline, we are cultivating workers who are both generalists for the food industry and specialists with advanced expertise.

● Develop and acquire new organic agricultural technologies that make use of the way ecosystems work.
The course is composed of subjects from the areas of cultivation science and plant molecular science.
Along with studying the essence of plants, animals, and microorganisms as living systems, students learn fundamental knowledge and techniques to efficiently and steadily increase production volumes and produce good quality and safe foodstuffs.
In second year, students will study foundation and specialized fundamental subjects to learn the fundamentals in order to more efficiently master the content from experiments and practical work from third year onwards.
Students conduct field surveys and laboratory analysis experiments in their third year to master data analysis methods as well as fieldwork and crop diagnosis methods.
