Thank you for visiting our webpage. You are cordially welcome and you are invited to explore and get to know more about the department.

The Education Department of Urdaneta Campus initially offered the program as BS in Elementary Education from 2015 to 2018. Realizing that the need for qualified teachers for Early Childhood Education, the program was converted to what is now known as a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education from 2018 up to the present.

Armed with noble goals and objectives, the department envisions to be one of the top producers of high-caliber educators, ready to respond to the ever-changing needs of the community in terms of delivering the best quality of education.
From its inception up to the present, the department can boast about the high overall performance in the Licensure Examinations for Professional Teachers. The results are staggeringly higher than the National Passing rate. This only means that the BECed program is worth considering for those who desire to be competitive educators.

Behind the success of the BECed department is a group of versatile and well-trained educators who are determined to brave the challenges of an unprecedented era of the pandemic. Despite the difficulties, they are ready to extend their services to all sorts of learners.

Inspired by the vision and mission of the University, the BECed program will continue aspiring to climb the ladder of excellence by complying with the rigorous standards of the accrediting agencies.
