Faculty of Education

Mission and Objectives

The mission of the Faculty of Education at Bethlehem University is to form teachers who are experts in leading and accompanying teaching/learning processes in the classroom and beyond in connection with the local community and the world.
In encouraging candidates to explore and reflect on the cultural heritage of the Palestinian society and its educational reality, the Faculty of Education promotes its candidates’ overall personality to be open, responsible, and capable of keeping and enriching the dynamic exchange between the individuals and their society as a basis for ensuring the continuous development of their society.

The Faculty of Education achieves its mission through its different programs that are characterized by:

  1. Recognizing the developmental nature of learning in the early, middle, and late childhood stages;
  2. Ensuring reciprocity in the teaching-learning process by using participative approaches in the educational setting; and
  3. Integrating the learning resulting from the interactive experiences of the teacher, learner, and the community in a continuously developing curriculum; using the action research methodology as an approach in developing the candidate’s personal, professional, and technical competencies;
  4. Consistent formation and experiential opportunities in developing critical thinking, holistic human development, resilience, and emotional intelligence, which they can share and promote with and for their students.

The Faculty educates undergraduate and graduate students who recognize education as a vocation and life mission and strive to make of the educational experiences they lead or participate in meaningful enrichment experiences for all the students involved.

Our students conform to the highest ethical standards of their profession, embrace and respect the Palestinian values and traditions in a spirit of openness and tolerance, and are able to participate and lead in the process of development of individuals and societies in changing and challenging national and international contexts.
