Undergraduate Programs

* Classes and examinations in the Faculties’ undergraduate programs are conducted in Japanese. Saitama University does not have a Department of Japanese,  or offer a course for Japanese Language study, where students can learn Japanese. Thus, students need to have sufficient Japanese language skills before entering the undergraduate programs of Saitama University. Likewise, there is no course at the undergraduate level, through which students can obtain a degree in English.

Faculty of Science

Each student belongs to one of five depertments (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, regulatory biology) and follows the curriculum of each department. The students are encouraged to acquire the required abilities and strive to cultivate the qualities which recognize the importance of fundamental theory that is not biased to a specific application and practical use.
