Outline of the Applied Marine Biology Course

Applied Marine Biology (AMB) is a marine science course with an emphasis on research applications to all aspects connected with harvesting food from natural and aquacultured marine animals and plants. Grounded in basic sciences in the first year, AMB students receive instruction and training in a broad range of techniques and subject areas, including ecology, physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology. Students will become familiar with many different animals and plants, both in the laboratory and in the field, including various kinds of fishes and shellfish, and other interesting organisms such as sea urchins, macroalgae (seaweeds) and microalgae (microplankton). Opportunities are also available for working at the biochemical level on novel substances of potential use as medicines. In short, training is available in all aspects of the Faculty of Agriculture themes of "Food, Health and Environment."

Career Perspectives

Many students graduating with a Bachelor of Agriculture decide to enroll in the graduate programs to study for a Master's degree, and some move on to take their doctorate. Students suitably qualified often continue on to a successful career in Industry, typically food-related, and many move on to work at marine research institutions both in Japan and abroad. AMB students are encouraged to take prominent leadership roles in marine related research, either here in Japan or upon returning to their own country. A large proportion of AMB graduates have moved on to research careers starting with higher degrees in either marine biology-related or medical fields.
