History (32):
  • 1924/09
    Miyazaki College of Agriculture and Forestry (Departments of Agronomy, Forestry, and Animal Science) was founded. Establishment of Campus Farm.
  • 1929/07
    Establishment of Sumiyoshi Ranch.

    Department of Veterinary Science established.

    College name changed to Miyazaki Norin Senmon Gakko by Paragraph 1 of Imperial Ordinance No.165.
Purpose of establishment:
Agriculture, forestry, and fishery in the coming age
are expected to change into more intellectually
intensive industries: primary, secondary, and tertiary
industries will be unified into more complex
industries, and specialization and deversification
will in tensify. In order to respond to this
situation, in the yeae 1989 and 2000, the Faculty of
Agriculture was reorganized so that three departments
(excluding the Department of Veterinary Science) were
adopted to four departments. In this way, a new
educational system has been established which is
capable of coping more flexibly and resiliently to
the new fields of study and to more interdisciplinary
approaches to education. This has made it possible to
create more colorful educational content, which
allows for an enlargment of student choices, and
which includes practicums at the various
university-affiliaed facilities. With the adoption of
a department, the Faculty offers a broad education
which is grounded in the basics while also providing
specialist, and promotes the nurturing of superbly
creative and practically-oriented graduates.
Business overview:
As agricultural productivity continues strong in the
21st century and is expected to intensify, recognition
of the foodstuff industry as well as environmental and
regional viewpoints must also be considered. In the
year 2000, the Faculty of Agriculture has found it
necessary to respond to these demands in reorganizing
our conventional four departments into five
departments: Department of Plant and Animal Production
Sciences, Department of Biological Production and
Environmental Sciences, Department of Regional
Agricultural Systems, Department of Biochemistry and
Applied Bioscience and Veterinary Sciences, as well as
the building of a new fully equipped research and
educational facility to be opened the same year. In
regards to educational content, we believe in
encouraging and reinforcing independent self
exploratory techniques to problem solving. Through
these methods, we expect to foster independent,
creative graduates, who will leave with a well-rounded
global education in recognizing the mutual
relationships between humans and our natural
