The Graduate Institute of Environmental Education was established in 1998. In 2000, a summer master's program of continuing education was offered , and a doctoral program is now being planned. The main objectives of the graduate institute are: developing the potential of graduate students in environmental education, assisting the nation and society in promoting theoretical and practical environmental education by means of research and participation, increasing interactions with environmental protection groups, and fostering communication between environmental protection organizations and local communities. There are four tracks of development: the school's environmental education, enterprise and environmental science education, environmental interpretation assessment education, and social environmental education. Graduates may choose to serve in NGOs (non-governmental organizations) as planners or curriculum designers, government posts, environmental consultancy companies, or environmental industries. There are 3 teachers in the department, including 1 professor, 1 associate professor, and 1 assistant professor. All of the teachers have doctoral degrees.
