The department not only expects students to be enthusiastic about education and characteristics of primary teachers’ course schedule- by classes, but also sets up some courses for child learning industry, children’s literature editing, computer and multimedia, and etc. to meet the needs of educational flow and society activities.
Moreover, we focus on broadening students’ international vision, strengthening their competiveness, offering some courses about the cross-national comparison of curriculum, comparative education and second languages, such as Japanese, Korean, German, and etc..
Our course structure consists of General Courses (28 credit hours), Areas of Specializations (80 credit hours), and Elective Courses (20 credit hours). Areas of Specializations are divided into Education Fundamental Theory and Research Methods, Administration and Policies, Curriculum and Instruction, Field Instruction and Teaching Materials & Methods. Students should select their elective courses based on their interests, career orientations and needs.
Students can also take their primary education program and select different optional courses based on their career and interest. For those who wish to take secondary education, childhood education and special education program, students are required to pass the qualification evaluation from our Center for Teacher Education and Careers Service prior to be admitted to the those programs.
