The Bachelor of Science in Education, Major in Science (BSEd Sci) program aims to develop highly motivated and competent student teachers equipped with the necessary content and pedagogy for teaching Science in Secondary Education. After their successful completion of the necessary academic preparation, graduates should be able to teach science in the Secondary Level, both in lecture and laboratory classroom settings.
Students who have the passion and the penchant for scientific thinking and scientific processes are assured of a training program imbibed with deep understanding of scientific concepts and principles; application of scientific inquiry in teaching and learning; utilizing effective science teaching and assessment methods.
The institution is confident that the students of the program are prepared and ready with the following competencies:
- Demonstrate competent knowledge on the disciplines of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science and Research necessary and appropriate in the Secondary Level
- Facilitate scientific learning using a wide range of teaching methodologies and delivery modes appropriate to specific learners and their respective environments
- Develop innovative curricula, instructional plans, teaching approaches and resources appropriate for scientific discourse for diverse learners
- Pursue lifelong scientific learning for personal and professional growth through varied experiential and field-based opportunities
The program’s government recognition from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and Level 1 accreditation from the Association of Local Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (ALCUCOA) concretizes MCC’S definition of quality of education. Part of quality education are our qualified and well-trained faculty, diverse and innovative learning strategies, different science laboratories (Physics, Biology, Chemistry), and student development programs with strong focus on social responsibility. Further, to augment classroom instruction, students are also exposed in the recent studies and trends in science through participation and attendance in various seminars-workshops and trainings and familiarization tours within and around the city. The program culminates with the student’s practicum program on practice teaching at the various cooperating schools within the city.
