BACHELOR OF ARTS IN EDUCATION - B.A. Edu.

A Bachelor of Arts with Education is an undergraduate degree program that combines the study of a specific arts discipline with courses in education and pedagogy. This program is designed to prepare students for careers as educators specializing in arts subjects such as economics, geography, history, and language at the primary, secondary, or high school levels. Students develop knowledge in their chosen arts discipline while also gaining a comprehensive understanding of educational theories, instructional methods, and classroom management strategies. The curriculum integrates arts-specific content with pedagogical courses, emphasizing the development of effective teaching techniques, curriculum design, assessment methods, and the integration of technology in arts education. Practical experiences, including teaching practicums and field placements, provide students with hands-on opportunities to apply their artistic and teaching skills in educational settings. Graduates of the program can pursue careers as arts teachers, arts coordinators, curriculum developers, or continue their education at the graduate level to further specialize in arts education or related fields.

Regulations Governing the Award of the B.A. Edu. Degree

The College operates a semester system of studies. Each discipline offers a variety of courses, including core courses, which are compulsory to students majoring in the subjects, and Elective courses. Each course is given a credit weighting according to the time devoted to it on the timetable. Fifteen one-hour lectures and fifteen two to three-hour practical classes constitute four credits. Thus, for example, a course consisting of 30 one-hour lectures and 15 three-hour practical classes is a Twelve (12) credits course. Seminars and discussion groups are not counted in the weighting unless they make up more than a third of the total teaching hours in a course.
