Towards child education that respects the cultural diversity of today’s society
Degree Programs: School Education, Early Childhood Education
Aiming to realize a shared global society through educating the next generation, this department fosters primary-level educators who possess a broad, inclusive perspective on global society and the skills to recognize and practically solve issues among children and schools from various viewpoints. The department has established two academic areas to achieve these aims.
- School Education: We engage in education and research with a focus on primary education, including education philosophy, education systems, education program contents and methods. We also concentrate on special support from the perspective of inclusive education.
- 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 areas, by combining pedagogy with practical training in schools, we cultivate the fundamental research abilities needed to explore childhood education, while at the same time, foster practical leadership skills in a primary educator.
