Department Objectives

The Department of Education offers general undergraduate programs as well as two teachertraining programs. The general programs focus on educational issues for lifelong learning, while the teachertraining programs are specifically for Early Childhood and Elementary Education and the Teaching of English as a Second Language. Students receive expert supervision in their field placements and are carefully guided in their methods courses. The Department values creativity and innovation in the teaching learning environment and instills in its students a sense of responsibility with respect to equality, diversity and nondiscrimination.
