Towards child education that respects the cultural diversity of today’s society

Aiming to realize a shared global society through training the next generation, this department fosters primary-level educators with a broad, inclusive perspective of global society and the skills to recognize and practically solve issues among children and schools from multiple viewpoints. The department has established two academic courses to achieve these aims.

In School Education, we engage in education and research with a focus on primary education, including education philosophy, systems, education program contents and methods. We also concentrate on special support from the perspective of inclusive education.

In Early Childhood Education we engage in education and research with a focus on infant education, including education philosophy systems, daycare programs and methods. We also examine primary education from the perspective of infant-primary collaborative education.

For both courses, by organically combining specialized teaching with practical training in schools, we cultivate the fundamental research abilities needed to explore childhood education, at the same time as fostering practical leadership skills as a primary educator.
