BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN EDUCATION - BSc. Edu.

A Bachelor of Science with Education is an undergraduate degree program that combines the study of a specific scientific discipline with courses in education and pedagogy. This program is designed to prepare students for careers as science educators at the primary, secondary, or high school levels. Students gain a solid foundation in a scientific discipline such as biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, or computer science, while also developing essential teaching skills and knowledge of educational theories and practices. The curriculum integrates scientific content with pedagogical courses, focusing on instructional strategies, curriculum development, assessment methods, classroom management, and the integration of technology in teaching. Practical experiences, such as teaching practicums and field placements, provide opportunities for students to apply their knowledge and skills in real educational settings. Graduates of the program are well-prepared to inspire and engage students in scientific learning, foster critical thinking skills, and contribute to the advancement of science education. They can pursue careers as science teachers, curriculum developers, educational consultants, or continue their education at the graduate level to further specialize in science education or related fields.

Regulations Governing the Award of the BSc. 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.
