School of Nutrition
In view of the importance of Nutrition in promoting health, the former Japanese Ministry of Education and Ministry of Health decided to establish a center for education and research in nutrition science in the national university system. The University of Tokushima was chosen to be the site of the new School of Nutrition in 1964. Since then, the School has sent out many leading teachers of nutrition as well as practicing nutritionists. The School is now recognized as the leading institution in nutritional science in Japan.
The School of Nutrition admits 50 undergraduate students annually and offers a 4-year education program leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Nutrition. The School has 7 departments with specialties ranging from molecular nutrition to clinical and public health nutrition. Students receive training in clinical nutrition in association with the University Medical and Dental Hospital.
