The Faculty of Agriculture was established in February 1919 and has developed steadily while making great strides in the fields of research and education of agricultural science and technology, including newer areas such as biological control, food science and technology, genetic resources and biotechnology. In the 21st century, we are entering a new era of applied biology supported by a profound understanding of nature and by the advancement of gene manipulation, protein engineering, cell fusion, etc., which have not only improved extant biological techniques but also made it possible to design innovative hitherto-unknown methodologies and techniques. Incorporating these into our programs, our research and education cover a broad spectrum of disciplines including biological, chemical, physio-mathematical, social and environmental sciences, which are related to maintaining a stable and sustainable supply of the food and natural materials indispensable for life, the conservation of wildlife and the environment, and the health and welfare of mankind. Our international graduate program is entirely English-taught and the lectures are taught by experts in their subject areas, and students at all levels can participate in research using cutting-edge equipment and methods.

The Faculty of Agriculture offers a supportive international environment in which to develop your academic interests at Masters or PhD level, which will form a solid foundation for your future.

Student’s Voice

What is your research about?
Agriculture is inherently a risky enterprise, and knowledge of farmers’ risk attitude is important because it reflects their personal and economic condition when making production decisions. My research investigates the risk attitude of smallholder pig raisers in Pampanga, Philippines. We used a multiple price list lottery and paired it with a conventional questionnaire to determine the risk attitudes of pig raisers and its relationship with their production strategies. Results of our research show that our subjects are risk-seeking, which have implication on how government extension services for available technologies on pig production may be improved considering farmers’ risk preferences.
What is an advantage of Kyushu University?
The Kyushu University Central Library is one of the best landmarks and facilities at Ito Campus. Not only does it have an amazing collection of academic references, but it also lists a wide range of subjects for recreational reading- both in print and digital format. The four-story atrium gives a feeling of warmth and possibilities to curious minds of those who come for a visit.
