Addressing problems surrounding children
The Graduate School of Education was established in April 2009 in order to conduct education and research that can contribute to the solution of the problems involving children and education facing modern society and to foster personnel who can contribute to society. This Graduate School offers the three courses of early childhood education, elementary and secondary education and applied education. The Master’s program focuses on helping students understand the theories of early childhood, elementary and secondary education and applied education and based on this, allows them to learn about and foster their ability to develop practical methods. During the second semester, we mainly provide instruction for research for thesis completion, aiming at fostering researchers who have the advanced research capabilities necessary to engage in specialized services, in addition to a wide range of underlying academic knowledge.
Preparing high-quality educators who have the three strengths of "execution", "educational capability" and "leadership", while understanding children
In recent years, the environment surrounding education has been in chaos and there are a host of problems involving children such as bullying, class disruption, children who refuse to go to school and declining academic standards. Meanwhile, demands from society toward education have been increasing, causing problems that cannot be handled only by teachers working in the field. The educational capability of society as a whole has to be regenerated, while taking all the educational activities of society, including those conducted by schools, households and local communities, into consideration. Kwansei Gakuin set up the School of Education in April 2009, aiming at preparing trusted and high-quality educators (teachers of elementary schools and kindergartens) and childminders, as well as supporters of various educational activities.
