New Degree Conferral, a Stepping Stone Mapping Out a Brighter Future


The School of Education (SOE) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) has been given the degree conferral right of the course-based (taught) master’s program in Education (Master of Education) by the State Council, marking a new stepping stone for the school development.

SJTU boasts a long history of cultivating students interested in Education. Tracing back to 1897, Nanyang College developed the first teacher education program in China. In 1985, the Program of Higher Education was established in SJTU, which outgrew the Graduate School of Education in 2007 and then expanded to SOE to serve both secondary and post-secondary education since 2020.

With its strength in science and engineering, the Master of Education program at SJTU aims to cultivate innovative and high-quality secondary school teachers with in-depth knowledge in one specific discipline. Students are able to establish a long-term and impactful career in educational practice, with the help of world-class faculty, cutting-edge research environment, and the school’s strong commitment to education equality.
