Arts and Sciences | MA in Pre-School Education
The Master of Arts in Pre-School Education provides opportunities for educators to experience personal and professional growth and development in the field of pre-school education. Educators study the historical, philosophical and legal development of early childhood programs and the rationale why each academic program must be designed and implemented with the pre-schooler's needs and potentials in mind.
The Program has a core of twelve (12) units in the foundation subjects, eighteen (18) units for the major subjects including field practice, six (6) units of electives and six (6) units for thesis writing. During the last semester of the program, the student prepares for a final assessment in the form of comprehensive examination, an oral presentation and defense of a thesis.
The MA in Pre-School Education aims to make educators:
The straight MA track is for BEE students who decide to pursue a graduate course and have a CQPA of 3.0 or better, with at least B+ in all major subjects by the time they enroll for thesis writing. They also need to pass the qualifying examination.
An oral defense of a completed thesis, which is an integral output of BEE and MA levels, is required prior to graduation.
