UC-BCF opens graduate course in Teaching SPED and ESL

September 17, 2006

BAGUIO CITY - Enrolment is now on-going here to train globally competent Master Teachers in Special Education and English as a Second Language.

The University of the Cordilleras formerly Baguio Colleges Foundation announce that they are now offering two new courses starting this second trimester - Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language and Master of Arts in Teaching Special Education.

Dr. Cleofas Basaen, dean of the UC Graduate School said the new course offerings is in response to the growing demands of language globalization and special care for children with special needs

Locally however, Basaen said the great influx of foreign students prompting the establishment of English Tutors and Learning Centers and agencies requires English teachers properly equipped with the necessary professional teacher's knowledge in teaching proper English language. The ESL program has courses like Linguistics, Phonology, Language Acquisition and Supervision and Language Instruction, among others.

The University of the Cordilleras also recognizes that although there are schools that cater to the needs of visual and hearing-impaired students, many children with other special conditions like autism and learning disabilities like dyslexia are left with very few teachers who are properly trained to capably provide the special instruction and guidance that they need, thus, the MAT-SPED program.

With the local and international demands for SPED and English teachers, graduates of education courses and behavioral science courses are also given the opportunity to specialize in SPED.

Those who are inclined towards a career in English instruction on the other hand will greatly benefit from the MAT- ESL program.
