On behalf of the academic and administrative personnel, I would like to welcome you to the Department of Educational Sciences website that presents the Department’s vision and mission, along with helpful information for current students and future applicants.
The Department has a distinguished faculty, whose members have a scholarly reputation in scientific field. They are recognized both in Jordan and internationally. They are a collegial eclectic group of individuals with varied and multidisciplinary interests.
We, in the Department, are committed to providing students with outstanding education and research experiences based on contemporary educational trends and research findings in the fields of education and psychology.
Moreover, we do our best to instill excellence in pedagogy and scholarship, to advance reflective, innovative, and collaborative teaching practices to maximize student learning and achievement. We encourage critical thinking and emphasize self-reflection throughout the courses, preparing students for academic and professional advancement for Jordan and the region.
The Department of Educational Sciences has two programs: Classroom Teacher and Childhood Education. Both programs have a distinctive reputation for excellence. Our primary mission is to provide high quality education that prepare our students to contribute constructively to the educational, cultural and social environments. Moreover, we encourage our students to become competent educators who are prepared to undertake responsibilities in all workplaces.
We strive to challenge and prepare students to work with diverse perspectives in order to foster student knowledge, skills and attitudes. We aspire to create critical thinkers, effective communicators, and committed teachers. We provide the value of small class size, individualized attention and experienced faculty.
Our continued success in the University Competency Exams conducted by the Jordan Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research is a tribute to the quality of our academic programs. We will, therefore, continue to work together as a high achieving, dynamic and collaborative faculty to promote the best practice in research, instruction and community service.
We have much to be proud of. I believe the best is yet to come as we move forward with new innovative programs equipped with renewed mission to reach and enrich the lives of those we serve.
