The Professional Education Program
The Baccalaureate Degree in Education has a primary focus on urban education. It is based on the premise that an urban metropolitan school system is actually a socio-educational organization designed to promote and promulgate academic and social literacy. Thus, the efficacy of an urban metropolitan school system to meet its purposes critically linked to the effective delivery of teaching, learning and services to a diverse clientele. Effective teaching, learning, and services are especially crucial when the urban metropolitan school system is constantly bombarded with ethnic, gender, socioeconomic cultural, ideological, and learner diversity which are inherent to a pluralistic society.
The reason for this Baccalaureate Degree in Education is that more effective pedagogy and services can be taught and learned by undergraduate students who are proactively committed to socio-educational excellence, socio-educational equality, and socio-educational equity for the diverse clientele of an urban metropolitan school system.
The Baccalaureate Degree in Education is well-grounded in professional education studies, specialized academic education studies, teaching content studies, and clinical-studies. All teacher education students are expected to demonstrate protracted levels of competencies, capabilities, and commitments to ensure greater student success in urban metropolitan schools.
