It is geared towards producing graduates with a strong background in education and with global perspectives. Incorporating innovative instructional pedagogy with functional and social knowledge enables students to understand theories and concepts from their roots.

It takes into account the need to immerse the student with the community to take the learning outside the classroom. The integration of local and global perspectives in teaching the principle of the common good is likewise introduced among students of this program.
