Bachelor of Science in Computer Studies with Education

The Faculty of Education offers the four-year Bachelor of Science (Education) in Computer Studies programme in conjunction with the Faculty of Management and Administration. The Computer Education program is intended to prepare teachers to teach computer studies/computing courses in schools. To ensure that prospective computer studies/computing teachers have very good grounding of the subject, the computing component of the program will be studied only as a major. Hence the degree to be awarded to students pursuing Computer Education will be Bachelor of Science in Computer Studies with Education (BScComStd.Ed.). The Computer Education program, at this stage, will incorporate only Accounting in the Business Education area; and only Geography in the Social Science Education area, as the minor subject areas.
