Department of Education was founded in August, 1987. We currently have about two thousand graduates and most of them contribute in the educational field. We have approximately 300 students including undergraduate students in four classes of four academic years and graduate students.
In 2003, we established the daytime master’s program; in 2006, we offered a master’s degree in Innovation and Management in Education Industry for students with a full time job; moreover, we expanded our department division in the city of Kinmen. This division is offering a master’s degree in educational administration for local students. The department was authorized to change its name to Department of Education in 2009 and the name of our graduate school adjusted to Master’s Program in Innovation and Evaluation in Education.
Our department was founded
in August, 1987 and began our Master’s program in Primary School
Education, which has a core value of characteristics in
broad-minded, professional, and analytical to build our future
In 2006, we wanted to continue our outstanding reputation in the primary education field so we expanded our department to another master’s program-- Innovation and Management in Education Industry (mostly nighttime courses). Also, in the same year, to meet the shortage of educators with a master’s degree in Kinmen, we offered the master’s program in educational policy for local educators to continue their career development.
In 2009, we changed the names for both the daytime and nighttime master’s program-- Innovation and Evaluation in Education and expect such change could raise our quality in the future. In our long historical inheritance, we want to maintain our outstanding educational culture, to collaborate education with related education industries, to broaden students’ international vision, to develop proper educational professions, to meet the needs of the current job market, and to increase our students’ competitiveness in the job market.
Our department emphasized on preparing students to be outstanding primary school teachers, and because of this, we gradually arrange students to teach in primary schools in order to practice from their first academic year to the fourth. Besides, through arrangement of curricula, we will develop students’ research, educational innovation, educational evaluation, and problem solving abilities.
Because we feel it is very important to open up students’ international vision, our program includes more second language related courses and holds annual practicum activities abroad and also provides oversea volunteer opportunities, which allow students to use in other languages for their career.
