The School of Education

The School of Education is steered by the premise that the choice to study education stems from a sense of purpose and mission and a desire to be a leader in society. The school views education as the foundation of the individual’s freedom and opportunities for self-realization, equality of opportunity, and a respectable standard of living.

Quality education and instruction require constant study and development throughout one’s lifetime. Therefore, the School of Education offers programs for those interested in launching a career in education alongside programs for professional development designed for teachers, principals, inspectors, counselors, and special education experts.
