Features
A Leading University in Teacher Education
 Since its founding, our school has striven to fulfill its mission as a leading university in teacher education. As a part of its success, it has ranked first in terms of its graduate employment rate as teaching faculty for eight consecutive years. The faculty employment rate for students completing graduate school (excluding mid-career teachers) is also very high, particularly among those completing Teacher Graduate School, who have also been ranked first for four years in a row, with an employment rate of 100%.
 In addition, we have engaged proactively with the issue of bullying in schools. In partnership with the Miyagi University of Education, Joetsu University of Education, Fukuoka University of Education, and other groups including Boards of Education across the country, our school has become a key participant in initiatives for education, research, support, and training.

The Environment is a Silent Education
 The Naruto University of Education adjoins a Seto Inland Sea National Park. The university’s surroundings include the dynamic Naruto whirlpools, Ryōzen-ji Temple, which is the first stop on the 88-temple Shikoku Pilgrimage, and the Ōtsuka Museum of Art, which houses an exhibit of ceramic plate reproductions of Western works of art. Only two hours by highway bus from Osaka, the park draws large numbers of tourists and pilgrims.
 A scenic and shining idyll of sapphire sea and emerald trees, our university’s extraordinarily beautiful campus is conducive to an expansive atmosphere that encourages contemplative and studious effort. Our first president, Yoshiaki Maeda, in the belief that “the environment is a silent education, and the environment and structures of the university are wordless teachers,” involved himself from the initial design stages in order to create one of the most beautiful campuses in Japan.
