BA (WITH EDUCATION) DEGREE PROGRAMME

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Students taking B.A. Education are required to take two Teaching Subjects (content) offered by the FoHSS. A student will be guided by the Faculty to pick two teaching subjects, e.g. History and Literature, Kiswahili and  Linguistics, Geography and Economics etc. The three departments offer courses to B.A. (with Education) students, namely (i) Economics and Geography, (ii) History, Development Studies and Political Science and (iii) Languages and Literature.

For B.A. Education students the following are compulsory/college-wide courses: (i) DS101 Development Perspectives I, (ii) DS102 Development Perspectives II, and (iii) CL106 Communication Skills.

 

The School of Education offers two teaching method courses: CT 106 for those taking language subjects such as English, French or Kiswahili and CT 107 for those taking non-language subjects such as History, Geography, Fine and Performing Arts, Political Science and Public Administration or Economics.

The regulation that the number of units per semester should lie between 15 and 18 per semester has to be adhered to. However, given the requirement to take college/university wide core courses and given that the School of Education offers for 2nd Year Semester I two or three (6 or 9 units) compulsory courses, students are compelled to taking 18 units per semester.

 

The choice of educational courses depend on the two Teaching Subjects combinations which a student may decide to take: (i) Language B.A. Education: Students choose teaching subjects 1 and 2 from language subjects.  For the time being, these include English, French and Kiswahili; (ii) Non-language B.A. Education: Students choose teaching subjects 1 and 2 from non-language subjects such as History, Geography, Political Science and Public Administration or Economics; (iii) Language + Non-language B.A. Education. Students choose one language subject and one non-language subject. For instance English and History; or Kiswahili and Geography.

 

Moreover, during Second Year-Semester I: (i) Language B.A Education, i.e. students will take CT 106 in addition to EP 101; (ii) Non-Language) B.A Education students: Students will take CT 107 in addition to EP 101; (iii) Students who combine language and non-language subjects must take both CT 106 and CT 107, in addition to EP 101.

All B.A. Education students must register for two Teaching Practice ‘practical courses’ (TP)  administered by the School of Education: (i) Teaching Practice 1 (CT 101) during the long vacation after Semester II of 1st year and (ii) Teaching Practice II (CT 202) during the long vacation after Semester II of 2nd year.
