The College of Education

Department of Education

Introduction

The Department of Education falls under the College of Education. Rather than being a typical subject, Education is a true academic scholarship that deals with values and asks the question of what must be learned to become a teacher.

Although we provide courses covering both academic and practical aspects of teaching, we are aware of the practical constraints of implementation. We strive to prepare qualified teachers through the collaboration of professors and students. This department will continue to lead by example at the College of Education.

History

December 31, 1975: Department of Education established
December 5, 1979: Masters degree courses began
November 11, 1980: Graduate School of Education masters degree research program began
December 4, 1981: PhD courses began

Job Prospects

Students who have graduated from the Department of Education are currently working in various fields. Just like the saying that “Wherever there are people, there is education,” students are entering many different sectors of society. Most graduates go on to work as teachers in secondary schools while some go on to become educational consultants and lifelong educators. Others find employment at corporate training centers, education research centers, and various social education institutions.

Please note that when students complete minors, (Korean, English, History, Ethics, etc.) or double majors, they can be appointed to teach in either or both fields. Students can become education specialists by diligently completing their courses. Many graduates have become experts in fields such as counseling, public relations, planning, and labor management while others have found work in the press, public corporations, and the academic sector.
