The programs of our department are structured to help students to develop their chemistry knowledge and to train students to become experts in teaching. Our students must take the subjects for general education, courses of the study for the teaching profession, a course of teaching practice to get experience preparatory to become a good teacher. Especially, to be able to research new fields of chemistry education, students have to take the course of developing principles and methods in teaching chemistry including to develop science textbooks, experiment methods, curriculums.
At the same time we offer advanced course of physical chemistry, organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry and experiments. Therefore, students can rethink the theory of chemistry, experience chemistry, learn chemistry knowledge and right attitude of research. Our graduates have diverse careers including chemistry teachers of secondary education, scholars in fields of education, scientists in research institute who studied graduate school or abroad.
