Message from the Dean

Jugar, Richard R.

On behalf of our students, faculty, and staff, I would like to welcome you to the School of Education of the University of San Carlos.

One of the seven schools of USC, the School of Education (SEd) offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in teacher education including in-service initiatives and certification trainings. The school is designated as a Center of Excellence in Teacher Education by the Commission on Higher Education as a recognition for its exemplary performance in the areas of instruction, research, and community extension. Moreover, both graduate and undergraduate offerings are accredited by the Federation of Accrediting Associations of the Philippines (FAAP) as evaluated by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges, and Universities (PAASCU).

Hailing from its foundation in 1938 with Fr. Ernest Hoerdemann, SVD as the first Dean,  the School of Education developed and grew as it transitioned from SVD to lay leadership in 1967. Today, the School continues to evolve and improve as it preserves the genuine Carolinian identity of ScientiaVirtus, and Devotio while continually contextualizing, innovating, and manifesting this identity through adoption and adaption of researched-based ethical approaches to learning, teaching, and professional development.

Central to SEd’s programs and services are the Carolinian current and future teachers, teacher educators, and academic administrators. In line with this, the academic programs of the School of Education are complemented by a wide array of student services to ensure that each SEd Carolinian is provided with a learning experience that is both enabling and transformative. We are keen in developing teachers and teacher educators who exhibit excellence in their field of expertise (scientia), are aware and adhere to the ethics of the profession (virtus), and are oriented for service of the locality, the country, and the world (devotio). 

I would like to cordially invite all of you who are considering a career in teaching and teacher education to explore our program offerings. We will be delighted to answer your queries and we are looking forward to having you with us in the School of Education.
