School of Science

Pursuing Cutting-Edge Research in a Variety of Fields

At Kwansei Gakuin University, the study of the sciences began with the founding of the original School of Science in 1961. The new School of Science will comprise the Department of Chemistry, which boasts over half a century of tradition and scientific achievements, the Department of Mathematical Sciences (founded in 2009), which is unique for its diverse interdisciplinary studies which cover fundamental mathematics to applied mathematics, and the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Researchers conduct research into the mysteries of space, working under a structure that brings together the three major fields of physics and astronomy (radio astronomy, infrared astronomy, and X-ray astronomy), which is extremely rare in Japan.
