The Doctoral Program in Geoenvironmental Sciences (the Master's Program in Geosciences in the Graduate School of Life and Geoenvironmental Sciences) is focused on the temporal and spatial study of the environmental conditions across the globe. This study will be conducted from the viewpoint of natural scientific processes and mechanisms. This program also deals with gaining a complete understanding of how the human environment is affected by natural scientific processes.
The purpose of this program is to train future international researchers and highly-skilled individuals.
The goal of this program is to impart professional knowledge essential for studies in geoscience and general knowledge useful for contributing to society.
"Tsukuba Geoenvironmental Sciences" (TGS) is an annual journal published by Doctoral Program in Geoenvironmental Sciences.

Doctor of Science or Doctor of Geoenvironmental Science
Master of Science or Master of Geoscience
Some members of our faculty work for the Center for Research in Isotopes and Environmental Dynamics (CRiED) and the Center for Computational Science (CCS). They are conducting their research and educational activities using facilities in these centers.
Members of the National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention (NIED) and the Meteorological Research Institute participate in the geoenvironmental study program. They serve as faculty members involved in the study of the terrestrial water cycle system and the atmosphere-ocean interaction system. These two studies are part of the curriculum of the Cooperative Graduate School Program.
The Geoenvironmental Science Program comprises eight interdisciplinary fields of study, and two of them are part of the curriculum of the Cooperative Graduate School Program.
The objective of this division is to study comprehensively and systematically the regional characteristics of terrestrial human activities from the viewpoint of the natural environment.
The human-environmental system is studied on a regional basis by focusing on the differences between the living environments in urban and rainy tropical areas.
In this division, the changes in landforms by weathering, erosion, transportation, and deposition are investigated from basic and broad viewpoints.
The aim of this division is to comprehensively investigate the natural hydrological cycle and its physical, chemical, and biological processes.
A wide range of atmospheric studies are conducted in this division; the topics of these studies range from meteorological local circulation, weather forecasting techniques, and climate change and to global warming.
In order to understand the changes on the ground surface and the surrounding environmental system, by performing various ground-surface-data analyses are carried out using geographical information systems (GIS) and remote sensing systems.
In this division, we try to elucidate hydrological cycles on various scales (from those in small basins to those on continents) by numerical simulation using basic information related to hydrological science.
In this division, research is being conducted using super computers in order to investigate long-term climate changes and other phenomena that are induced by interactions among the atmosphere, oceans, and land.
Admission Information including tuition, fees, scholarships and grants is available at the website of University of Tsukuba.
