Research Center for Social Sciences and Education

Overview

The Research Center for Social Sciences and Education (RCSSEd) gathers together research associates by research interest groups (RIGs) namely, economics, business and finance studies; language studies; education and leadership studies; studies in psychology, and contemporary social issues researches (covering studies on inter-generational relations; social health; migration, politics and policies; and environmental vulnerability, security, and sustainability). Emerging working groups (WGs) in the fields of linguistic studies and peace and conflict studies are also currently supported by the center. At present, special projects on inclusive education, relevant Catholic church-related matters (CBCP), and finance soundness and literacy (CIMA) are also being undertaken by the center.

History

The UST Research Center on Social Sciences and Education (RCSSEd) was created in January 2017, from the previously merged Research Center on Culture, Education, and Social Issues (RCCESI). Further into its history, the social sciences and education researches were handled by the old Social Research Center (SRC) and Center for Educational Research and Development (CERD).
