Credit: 2 Units
In the case that the student taking this course should come to Japan, he or she may use these two units in the Master Course program of the Division of Food and Nutrition at the Japan Women's University. In the event that the student's home university will recognize the credits earned in this course they may be used their home institution for their Master Course.

Grading: The student is expected to submit one report and one examination by Internet.

Who should take this course: This course is aimed at giving the graduate student the basic nutritional knowledge and practical knowledge to apply nutritional biochemistry in Public Health, hospitals, schools, factories etc. Students taking this course should have an undergraduate degree in fields such as medicine, pharmacy, biology, chemistry, nutrition, agriculture, and related fields.

The evaluation: Report and Examination
