Dean's Message

IKE, Shunsuke

The goal of the Graduate School of Education is to foster researchers with advanced capabilities in basic research on education and various other fields in support of those studies, and furthermore the various scientific fields which support the foundation of those subjects, while at the same time fostering advanced professionals in faculties in the various fields related to education. Our major advantage is that we can provide a variety of programs for people that have already been active in the field of education.
