The College of Education, which will inherit and expand the School of Children's Education major of Human Environment Department in the College of Cross-cultural Communication and Business, will be established. The major goal for students is to become a nursery school teacher, kindergarten teacher or elementary school teacher and bring happiness to children. Students will also acquire theoretical practical leadership ability through experience in a number of practical trainings.
Field study will be conducted in stages, and students will learn the necessary knowledge and skills before using them. To cultivate a childcare educator who has practical skills through field study, in addition to theories regarding education, nursery, and development of infants and children, we also need to help students to develop a wide range of skills including leadership, support, communication and teaching skills. Students should acquire the following qualities as an educator by learning class subjects provided by Children's Education Department.
- From the 1st year to the 3rd year, practical training will be conducted for two weeks in a kindergarten and elementary school as part of education practice classes. Students should learn from practice by being in direct contact with the education field and develop practical leadership skills.
- From the 1st year to the 4th year, classes will be given in a form of seminar with about 10 students in the class through those 4 years. Students can acquire professional knowledge and skills needed as a teacher of kindergarten and elementary school.
- The curriculum will ensure students to learn the necessary knowledge to be a teacher in the future, including "School safety management and guidance", "Children's environmental learning theory", "Team teaching theory and method", and "Teachers' interpersonal communication skills", which are present-day issues in school education.
- Teachers and principals from kindergartens and elementary schools as well as members from the Board of Education will come to give lectures. Students can learn directly from lectures of experience through role-plays or workshops based on the latest case studies.
