The Department has two graduate programs: MA and PhD programs in Educational Sciences. These programs lead to MA and PhD degrees in Educational Sciences. Both programs are carried out in English and take an interdisciplinary approach to education whereby students may take various elective courses besides the core curriculum. Educational sciences area is divided into several areas of specialization such as curriculum and instruction, measurement and evaluation, educational management, and guidance and psychological counselling. Those who would like to specialize can select courses from one of these areas in addition to core curriculum. In these programs the Department’s aim is to prepare scholars who would carry out qualitative and quantitative research in education and related fields. This complies with their general aim of producing quality teachers and educational scientists who would contribute to the improvement of curriculum and instruction and education in general.
Graduates of an MA program in Educational Sciences are accepted to the program; however graduates of other MA programs may be accepted under the condition that they successfully complete the deficiency course work suggested to them by the department.
