About Education - Science Bachelors Degree program.

The Bachelor of Education (Science) programme is designed to produce professionally qualified teachers who will be competent in teaching science subjects in secondary schools and middle-level colleges.

In the first year, students must take mathematics and chemistry, and any other (physics and botany/zoology) as content subjects.

In the second year of study, a student drops one of the content subjects and pursues the remaining two, one as a major and the other a minor.

The major subject is that which the student is expected to teach up to form the IV level of secondary school, and must, therefore, spend more time covering its content.

For the minor subject, the student is normally taught up to form II level and the content coverage is, therefore, less and is normally completed by the end of the third year of study.

The Bachelor of Education (Science) degree program is offered on both a full-time basis only.
