Physics and Astronomy Program
Physics is a discipline that forms the basis of the entire realm of the natural sciences and technology. Research in physics covers the whole gamut of conceptual scales, ranging from the extremely fine in elementary particle study, to the changes in matter on a scale of our everyday life and their properties, to the vast universe.
The Program offers the opportunity to research potential explanations of the basic and universal laws of nature, the elucidation of the properties and characteristics of materials under cryogenic environments or high magnetic fields, and to seek the lofty goals of shedding light on the phenomena of the universe. Through such research activities, we aim to develop the following human resources who will have the ability to solve, based on the laws of the nature, many of the problems that human beings face today. We want our graduates to be individuals:
- who will utilize their professional skills in physics and flexible thinking ability to contribute to the deepening and development of the natural sciences and technology;
- who will take the initiative in contributing creatively to the maintenance of the kind of sustainable society that exists symbiotically with the earth’s environment; and,
- who will apply their deep insights to the relationship that naturally and long has existed between humankind and nature from a global perspective.
Educational Goal and Three Policies of the Physics and Astronomy Program
Our fields are physics and astronomy.
Students will learn specific topics systematically through a multiple of subjects so that they will grow into human resources who can respond to social seeds (new technology owned by companies) in their chosen field. Master’s Course students will choose one or more of the fields offered by the Program and will be required to take subjects designated by the chosen field to learn the advanced educational content required by the field.
For more information on the curriculum, please refer to the Guidebook to Curriculum and Registration.
