Introduction to the Master’s Program

Educational Goals of the Master’s Program

The Master’s Program in Education is the only independent Masters course in the University of Tsukuba Graduate School. The long history and tradition of this program have created its reputation since the establishment of the teacher-training school in 1872.
This program is intended to endow students with precise and deep knowledge from a broad perspective and to cultivate research capability in the education sector, as well as related specialized skills and abilities. In terms of these objectives, we offer two programs, namely School Leadership and Professional Development and Secondary Education. These two programs work in collaboration to teach the fundamentals of expertise in school education and subject education. We are aiming to develop teachers as high-level professionals who utilize their special certificate expertise and master’s degree (educational science), while having a global perspective and practical education skills.

People sought by the Master’s Program

The Master’s program is seeking people who have depthful insights into a range of contemporary school education problems based on the various academic disciplines, and can imagine different solutions by themselves in order to take on a leadership role in the implementation thereof.
