The Faculty of Education is part of the three faculties constituting the Dar es Salaam University College of Education (DUCE). Founded in September 2005, DUCE is a constituent college of the University of Dar es Salaam established to train graduate teachers for secondary schools and teachers’ colleges. The Faculty of Education at DUCE envisions becoming a leading centre for education studies and a gateway to the teaching profession in the region and beyond.
The Faculty operates through two departments:
the Department of Educational Psychology and Curriculum Studies and the Department of Educational Foundations, Management and Lifelong Learning. The Faculty management consists of the Dean, the Associate Dean, and the Heads of the three Departments.
To become a leading centre for education studies and an important gateway to the teaching profession in the region and beyond
The Faculty Administration is assigned to the Faculty Dean, who is assisted by the Associate Dean and the Senior Administrative Officer. The office of the dean coordinates the activities of the Faculty’s departments which are headed by the heads of departments.
The Faculty of Education currently offers two undergraduate degree programmes in education, namely the Bachelor of Education in Arts (B. Ed. Arts) and Bachelor of Education in Science (B. Ed. Science). The Faculty also offers educational foundations and pedagogical courses to students taking B. Sc. Ed and B.A. Ed. Programmes, which are offered by the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences respectively. The Faculty of Education, therefore, provides training in the teaching profession for all education students at DUCE.
The Faculty also offers a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) and is in the process of developing more postgraduate programmes, including a master’s degree in education.
Our students are developed to become highly competent professional graduate teachers, with a wider outlook on the teaching profession. Equipped with critical thinking and transferable generic skills, our graduates are the preferred choice for a diverse section of employers within and beyond the teaching industry.
