The Special Integrated Science Course (SISC) combines aspects of three majors —chemistry, biology and macromolecular science— in the Graduate School of Science, and involves research and education in fields where chemistry merges with biology.
This course is designed to turn out highly creative researchers who have a sensibility and an intellectual curiosity about the natural sciences and who enjoy the pursuit of truth and can demonstrate leadership in a wide range of social contexts through their problem-solving abilities and logical thinking.
Focusing on the cutting-edge of basic science, the course has a flexible research-oriented approach to learning that produces original, innovative findings with the goal of making a sustained contribution to humanity and quality of life from a global perspective.
To this end, the course aims to not only cultivate outstanding researchers in different fields of specialization, but also individuals who have a broad background in the natural sciences and who can demonstrate leadership in a wide range of social contexts. Another aim of the course is to cultivate individuals who demonstrate knowledge and skills in advanced areas of chemistry and biology and who have a strong sense of responsibility and ethics as scientists and engineers and who can make significant contributions to the international community.
