About the Program

The Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd) is a four-year program that prepares students for the art and science of teaching. It shapes expertise in pedagogy, such as child and adolescent development, principles of teaching, facilitating learning, curriculum development, assessment of student learning, educational technology and classroom management, among others, as well as prospective teachers’ disciplinary expertise.

The areas of specialization offered by the program are: English, Filipino, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. The program concludes with intensive practice teaching in the laboratory school of the College and in the cooperating public schools, where practice teachers receive dynamic mentoring from experienced cooperating teachers and professional education supervisors.
