Nara University of Education offers three undergraduate major programs for deeper learning: "Education and Development," "Subject Education," and "Traditional Culture Education." Students enrich their "Learning Histories" through on-campus learning along with off-campus experiences (teaching practice at the affiliated kindergarten and schools, school support at public schools, and volunteer activities).
The "Learning Histories" practically enhance the students' technical competence in course instruction, their clinical competence in education, and their capability to deal with various issues.
