The Graduate School of Education aims at nurturing individuals who are capable of applying specialized knowledge and advanced research skills to find solutions to complex human and social challenges. The Division of Interdisciplinary Studies in Education, a newly launched division in the Graduate School of Education in April 2018, will support this mission by connecting scientific inquiry and practical wisdom through research, education, and social contribution.
Graduate students enrolled in the Division of Interdisciplinary Studies in Education belong to one of the five chairs, then choose one specialized area out of 9 courses. The Global Education Office will serve as a research hub for interdisciplinary education and offer cross-sectional perspectives over diverse specialties by developing global education curricula, critically analyzing cultural models of education, developing Japanese models of education culture, and strengthening collaborative partnerships with domestic and international education and research institutes.
