Bachelor of Secondary Education, major in Mathematics (4 years)

Description 

Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd) is a four-year program that prepares its students for the art and science of teaching. It builds know-how in pedagogy, such as foundations of education, principles of teaching, facilitating learning, curriculum development, child and adolescent psychology, assessment of student learning, educational technology and instructional materials preparation, and classroom management, among others, as well as would-be teachers’ disciplinal expertise. The areas of specialization offered by the program are: Science, English, Filipino, Mathematics, Religious and Values Education, and Social Studies. The program culminates with an intensive one-year practice teaching in the laboratory school of the College and in the cooperating public and private (local and international) schools, where student teachers receive active mentoring from highly-experienced professional teachers.
