College of Teacher Education

Teaching is a dignified profession, as teachers play a crucial role for the development of students into responsible human being. Aptly termed as nation builders, a career in teaching brings a lot of job satisfaction to candidates. The profession offers a host of career possibilities for candidates. Aspiring candidates can choose to work as elementary school teachers, high school teachers, public school teachers etc. To make a successful career in teaching, you need to equip yourself with all the essential career information including job description, nature of work, working environment, educational qualification and training required to become a teacher.

Teachers employed in kindergarten and elementary schools are responsible for the development of students in their early years. It is through the formative years’ education that children learn to shape their views which further determines their success in future. These professionals are responsible for introducing children to subjects like mathematics, social studies, languages etc. They use computer games, books, films and artwork to develop children, intellectually and socially. Middle school and secondary school teachers provide a deeper knowledge of subjects taught in elementary school during the children’s formative years. They delve deeper into these subjects and make children aware of more information about the world. Depending on their individual interests, these teachers specialize in teaching specific subjects like mathematics, biology, history etc.

There are so many jobs available to teachers right now. The job market expansion in education is not just happening in the Philippines because of its thrust of Education for all and the transition to K to 12 education system. Teachers are very much in demand now and in the future.

Many graduates find employment with structural or building environmental systems engineering consulting firms, which work with architects in designing building structures and mechanical systems. Other graduates work with acoustics and noise control specialists. Still others find employment with construction firms, as field construction engineers, project managers, or cost estimators. Large industries—such as oil companies, building material manufacturers, and railroads—are always interested in hiring Architectural Engineers for management or sales positions. State and federal agencies involved in building design, construction, and research offer many opportunities for graduates. Many graduates find employment with real estate development and facilities-management firms.

Employment opportunities are excellent and demand is very strong for the limited number of graduates. In general, engineering employment is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2018, although outlook will vary by branch. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that biomedical, environmental and civil engineering will experience much faster than average growth, while employment in petroleum engineering, industrial engineering and geological and mining engineering will grow at a faster than average rate. Other branches will grow either as fast as the average or slower than the average for all occupations, or will see a decline in employment.

If you want a more general job, you may wish to work for a small business running the accounting function with only one or two other employees. Others will prefer to work for the government at the federal or state level, filling more specialized roles in a myriad of audit functions. Perhaps the most lucrative path is to start your own firm alone or with a partner and develop your own business streams via traditional means like advertising and through working with business associations and professional groups.

Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurs start new businesses and take on the risk and rewards of being an owner. This is the ultimate career in capitalism – putting your idea to work in a competitive economy. Some new ventures generate enormous wealth for the entrepreneur. However, the job of entrepreneur is not for everyone. You need to be hard-working, smart, creative, willing to take risks and good with people. You need to have heart, have motivation and have drive.

One of the best things about pursuing a career as an entrepreneur is the wide-open possibilities. There is room in many economies throughout the globe for entrepreneurship – such as India, Brazil, Dubai, the U.S. or Kenya.  It’s important to be savvy and understand what is and is not realistic. The web is chock-full of come-ons promising to make you rich. Avoid promotions that require you to pay up front to learn some secret to wealth. Understand that the market is more or less efficient – which means that if a bunch of people know a sure way to be a millionaire then the opportunity has probably already been competed away. On the other hand, look for inefficiencies in markets. Places where a better idea, a little ingenuity or some aggressive marketing could really make a difference. Think about problems that people would pay to have a solution to. It helps to know finance. It’s a must to really know your product area well. What do consumers want? What differentiates you from the competition? How do you market this product? A formal business plan is not essential, but is normally a great help in thinking through the case for a new business. You’ll be investing more in it than anyone else, so treat yourself like a smart, skeptical investor who needs to be convinced that the math adds up for the business you propose starting.

The possibilities in entrepreneurship are endless. The rewards can be high. And the risks are undoubtedly high too. But, if you have drive, creativity and the desire to be your own boss, this may very well be the career for you.

Bachelor of Science in Public Administration

Public administration can be defined as the implementation of policy by civil servants within an official government’s executive framework. Public administrators manage nearly every aspect of public service at the federal, state and local levels offering the opportunity to help shape the future.

A public administration degree provides an academic background for individuals pursuing a career in either government or non-governmental/nonprofit organizations. There are several areas of overlap between these pursuits, so an education that combines both will give you competitive strength and allow you to move into either area, according to your own career interests. For example, you may start your career in fundraising for a nonprofit organization, and later become a member of a governmental grant-awarding body. A public administration degree or public policy degree gives you great flexibility in changing career titles.

Like a regular degree in management, a public administration or public policy degree can focus on organizational governance, finance, and administration. With this specialization you can look into jobs in local, state, or federal government; in public service sectors such as healthcare and animal welfare; or non-profit organizations such as arts or international relief agencies.

The one thing all these potential jobs share is motivation–you won’t be working for the “bottom line”. Your focus will be on intangible factors such as providing services, setting and implementing policies, or the evaluation of social programs. You may be involved in research and development, marketing, financial planning, public relations, or human resource development.
