  The United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences (a 3-year doctoral program), has established a program based on these principles offering three courses: Bioresource Production Science, Applied Bioresource Science and Life Environment Conservation Science, which reflect the distinctive strengths of the agriculture faculties of the three participating universities. These three courses accept students who have completed a master's degree in Japan. But we also offer agricultural research and study enriched by a global perspective which is enhanced by the international students participating in the Tropical and Subtropical Agriculture and Related Sciences program and the Special Doctoral Course Program in Agricultural Sciences for Students from Asia, Africa and the Pacific Rim who concentrate on research related to their specific regions.
