With this aim, the Program has 2 majors: School Leadership and Professional Development and Secondary Education. Each major is open to domestic (members of society/working persons) and foreign students, including in-service trainees.
The Program has 100 enrolled students (20 for School Leadership and Professional Development, 80 for Secondary Education) and about 120 faculty members. The number of foreign students who graduated from the program is 198 (from 1977 to 2008 academic year). Since 1980, this program has also accepted about 10 non-degree in-service foreign teacher trainees from developing countries in each academic year (for 1 1/2 years) with a special curriculum, such as Education in Japan and lectures on major fields.
