The Faculty of Science at the University of the Ryukyus consists of three departments : Mathematical Sciences, Physics and Earth Sciences, and Chemistry, Biology and Marine Sciences. The education we provide covers the entire scope of mathematics and natural sciences through five main fields: Mathematics, Physics, Earth Sciences, Chemistry and Biology.
While the Faculty of Science recruits students in each of these fields, we aim to create a flexible educational system which ensures that our students receives a solid and broad foundation in science. For this purpose, we prepare a category of lectures named “Faculty of Science common subjects” which establishes general education in science and serves to break down barriers between departments. Among them, we provide a subject “Kisozemi” which consists of many classes. Each class consists of several freshmen and one lecturer. This style of lecture yields easy communication of each other. This subject provides freshmen knowledge, skills and ways of thinking that are necessary for studying in our faculty.
Humanity has attempted to understand the structure and mechanisms of nature through science. Science has constructed the foundations of human intellectual properties and its applications have contributed to the advancement of human society. Science continues to help solving various problems of modern society. The Faculty of Science aims to contribute to sound and sustainable social development in this century.
