The Faculty of Education was established in 1957 as the seventh faculty of Chulalongkorn University. Originally known as the Department of Teacher Training, the Faculty of Education was under the administration of the Faculty of Arts and Science, which was one of the first four faculties of Chulalongkorn University. In 1943, when the Faculties of Arts and Science were separated, the name ‘Teacher Training’ was changed to ‘Education’ and attached to the Faculty of Arts, subsequently named the “Faculty of Arts and Education”. It was not until 1957 that the Faculty of Education became independent. It started off with four departments, gradually increasing to a total of twelve departments and two demonstration schools.

The Faculty of Education takes pride in the strength of the programs that it offers. This results from the expertise of faculty members and their ongoing research. The program’s graduates have found work in both the public and private sectors in and outside of the country. They have gone to work at public and private universities, non-profit organizations, and various governmental ministries. Faculty and students have won numerous distinguished awards, and they have been recognized for their contributions to current educational reform.
