The Faculty of Education
The mission of The Faculty of Education is to empower its students and staff to perform to their highest potential by offering programmes of the highest quality and guidance that will facilitate them to demonstrate best practice in teaching/ methodology, research as well as affective skills.
Overview of the Faculty of Education
The Faculty of Education has four departments. These are Special Education, Early Education, Professional Studies and Physical Education. The Faculty offers 4-year degrees in Primary Education, Early Childhood Education, Special Education and Physical Education. Through the Department of Professional Studies, many of the required courses for teacher preparation programmes are offered, regardless of the area of specialization. This department also administers the Practicum component of the programmes, giving students the opportunity to do field work in schools/institutions mostly in Kingston and St. Catherine, allowing them to practise the teaching strategies, methods and skills to which they are exposed in the more theoretical courses. We encourage a reflective approach to both facilitation and learning and see our students as our number one priority.
