Features
Beginning in 1876 as Kyoto Prefectural Normal
School, the Kyoto University of Education has
been endowed with 144 years of history and
tradition.
Although a college for teacher training, it is a
comprehensive educational university with
thirteen undergraduate departments, including
Educational Science, Japanese Language, Social
Studies, Science Education, Art Education, Music
Education, and Physical Education. Our Graduate
Schools offer two courses: the Graduate School’s
for master’s degrees and the United Graduate
School of Professional Teacher Education’s
course for special educational academic degrees.
The campus is the south of Kyoto City, a city
that not only represents, as the old capital,
Japanese traditional culture with its many World
Heritage sites, cultural assets and rich spiritual
culture, but also Japanese modern culture, with
its famous Kyoto Station and Manga Museum—a
city in which one can experience both historical
and contemporary Japanese culture.
