Values Education

The UA&P-School of Education and Human Development has established values education as its niche—mainly through the delivery of the Master of Arts in Education, major in Values Education. SED wishes to optimize this leverage and contribute to improving the values system of Philippine Education.

The program aims at equipping school heads and master teachers with the knowledge and skills that would enable them to guide their respective schools on how to integrate values in their field, at the same time promote a culture that is congruent to these values.  By managing their schools by values, the school heads and master teachers will make their students see that values are not mere theories or ideals, but are realities lived by the school. Only through this seamless integration of values that students will truly learn and appreciate the importance of values as they experience them in the school, the home, and the community.

This major is for school personnel who are involved in teaching and guidance and counseling, and who would like to integrate values in their teaching practice.

Program Delivery

The program leads to a degree of Master of Arts in Education, major in Values Education (MAE-VE) for thesis track, and Master in Education, major in Values Education for non-thesis track. Participants can complete the program in 2 years without having to give up or be released in their jobs. They must earn 39 units (33 units of coursework and 6 units of action research or thesis writing) to be eligible for graduation.
