The Department of Educational Sciences was established in 1991. It offers two programs: Classroom Teacher and Childhood Education. Both programs are accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education and meet the requirements of QAA (Quality Assurance Agency).
The Department is presently headed by Dr. Aseel Shwareb and has (22) full-time faculty members and (297) students.
Quality education is our paramount concern, and the faculty members form a collaborative group who share a vision of the importance of their role in shaping the future. To that end, the Department consists of educators who have a wide experience in the fields of teaching, research and community service. They strive to maintain high standards of professional excellence to prepare our students to successfully teach and administer programs in a variety of educational settings.
Three tenets: content knowledge, pedagogy, and professional dispositions guide the department and make up its professional framework.
The overall mission of the Classroom Teacher program is to prepare competent classroom teachers who are able to teach effectively students in the first three grades in the basic cycle (1–3). The overall mission of the Child Education program is to prepare specialists in the area of teaching and caring for children in nurseries and kindergartens according to the latest educational theories and practices.
We envision a dynamic department of professional studies that will substantially inspire in our candidates a heightened sense of responsibility for stewardship of our schools and our communities.
The mission of the Department is to prepare competent, enthusiastic and morally virtuous teachers and administrators dedicated to responsible service and leadership, and able to address the contemporary issues and advance the profession of education
