These schools included Chiba Medical College and its affiliated Medical Department and Pharmaceutical Department, Chiba Normal School, Chiba Youth Normal School, Tokyo College of Technology, and Chiba College of Agriculture. At the beginning, Chiba University consisted of five faculties (Liberal Arts, Medicine, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Industrial Art, and Horticulture) and a research institute (Putrefaction Research Institute). After several times of improvement and reorganization, the University currently consists of nine faculties (Faculty of Letters, Faculty of Education, Faculty of Law and Economics, Faculty of Science, Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Faculty of Nursing, Faculty of Engineering, and Faculty of Horticulture), University Library, University Hospital and associated departments and centers. Based on the undergraduate education and studies, the graduate school offers four programs, i.e., Humanities (Master's Course) and Education (Master's Course), Social Science (Master's Course), and Nursing (Master's Course and Doctoral Course).
