Faculty of Education

The Faculty of Education was established in May 1949 under the new Kumamoto University system. It originated from schools such as the Kumamoto Teacher’s High School created in 1874.

The Faculty of Education currently has four courses. One course trains teachers for the elementary school and junior high school levels, while others train teachers for other types of schools.

In addition, at the Center for Educational Research and School Development, students can receive advice on matters related to educational practice, particularly what to do when problems occur on the job. The Center also engages in practical research.


Center for Educational Research and School Development

The Center analyzes and seeks practical solutions to the problems that arise in education. It also conducts research on what types of classes and curricula meet contemporary needs. To achieve these aims, it has established an Education Clinic Division, comprised of an Education Consultation Section and an Education Organization Section, and an Education Curriculum Division. It also develops comprehensive, practical activities in cooperation with related organizations.
