FELS Bachelor of Education Degree Attains UCJ Accreditation


he Faculty of Education and Liberal Studies has attained accreditation

for the Bachelor of Education degree course of study. The grant of

accreditation would have a positive impact on the graduates of the

programme, and should redound to the credit of the Faculty as a whole.

The process towards accreditation was led by Dean, Dr. Rohan Lewis; Dr

Sylvia Hall, Lecturer, FELS prepared the self-study. Dr Winsome Russell,

AVP, Academic Management and the team in the Office of Curriculum

Development and Evaluation(OCDE) worked tirelessly on this application

along with members of the Faculty’s team who spent long hours in the

effort to satisfy the requirements of the University Council of Jamaica (UCJ).
