Business overview:
Miyagi University of Education was started as a
university of education in the new age in April,

Teacher Training Course, Secondary Education Teacher
Training Course,Special Needs Education Teacher Training
Elementary education teachers must have abilities for
appropriate instruction of a diverse group of students
in all subjects at different levels and ages of children.
Given these demands, Elementary Education Teacher Training
Course is designed to educate future teachers to impart
in them firm academic and practical backgrounds as well
as a rich personality through strictly selected groups
of subjects.
Secondary education teachers are required to have not only
the knowledge of a particular subject, but also the ability
to teach students, who are growing from childhood to adulthood,
appropriately. Secondary
Education Teacher Training Course is intended to educate
futuresecondary education teachers with a good balance of
firm special knowledge and practical skills by deepening
the specialty of the major as well as promoting frequent
visits between the university and educational fields.
In the Special Needs Education Teacher Training Courses,
under the four sub-courses such as “Visual Disorder Education
Course,”“Hearing and Language Disorder Education Course,”
“Development Disorder Education Course,”and“Health
and Dismotility Education Course,”we seek to educate teachers
who can directly face students with disabilities and tap the full
potential of the students while accommodating different individual
requests and needs appropriately.
