Well-rounded and experienced elementary school teachers
The Department of Elementary School Education cultivates elementary school teachers who have a wide range of knowledge, technical skills, and both teaching and counseling skills related to all subjects taught in elementary school, who are able to adapt to contemporary educational issues (such as ICT, developmental disorders, multiculturalism, and foreign language skills, particularly English), and who have strong practical skills grounded in an understanding of the connections between early childhood education and elementary school.
The daytime course equips students with the ability to understand children together with fundamental teaching skills, and strives to cultivate teachers with strong practical classroom skills grounded in an understanding of the connections between early childhood education and elementary school. There is also an evening course (with a maximum of five years of study) that strives to cultivate teachers with deep sense of compassion and social responsibility based on the wealth of their daytime work experience or internship activities in educational settings.
- Individuals who have a strong interest in and awareness of issues relevant to elementary school education.
- Individuals who are equipped with the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to become an elementary school teacher.
