The College of Education was established in 1955, the same year that the Provincial Taiwan Normal College became what is now the National Taiwan Normal University. As the most prominent national education institute in Taiwan, the college is exceptional in size, faculty, and student performance. No effort is spared in advancing the country’s educational policy and administration, nurturing academic excellence, and training teachers for middle and high school instructions.

The College pioneers the ideal of education reform and emphasizes the importance of administration management. It has also promoted education in ethics, health, and parenting; crafted a digital learning environment and a distant learning platform; and supported continuing education and special education. Many of our alumni are contributing to a better learning environment in Taiwan, whether as officials in government agencies, presidents at universities, academic researchers in the field of education, or teachers in both the public education system and private institutes. In addition, the College has earned an international reputation in academic research, ranking among the top 22 institutions of its kind in 2015 by QS World University Rankings. The College of Education has seven academic Departments, all of which have graduate schools offering degrees at Master’s and PhD levels; five independent graduate institutes; and one in-service master program.
