Faculty of Education

  • Hachioji Campus

Cultivating the skills to contribute to society in the wider sense

Originally set up as the Department of Education within the Faculty of Liberal Arts in 1973, the Faculty of Education was restructured as an independent entity in 2012 to accommodate the growing need for a more practical and immediate focus in teacher training accompanied by quality guarantees. The Faculty sees teacher training as part of a wider discipline encompassing humanity, education and society and to this end encourages educational and research connections between schools and communities and the world at large. In order to nurture the potential in each and every student, the educational programs are designed to provide a learning environment conducive to serendipitous discovery, independent growth and development, and collaboration and joint endeavor between students.
