Upon completion of the program, graduates can be employed as educational policy expert,  researcher, educational policy proponent and implementer, program supervisor, school administrator, and consultant.


Program Curriculum

The doctorate program is composed of 18 courses or 60 units on theories and principles of education, theories and processes in curriculum and instruction, trends, issues, and policies in education, organizational and supervisory leadership, school legislation, policy analysis in education, and principles of research.

In the program, students will delve deeper into the current issues and trends in educational management and supervision and its impact and relevance to national and international education systems and scholarly outputs produced in the field of education. This exploration trains students to become experts in the field and prepares them to work as program or school administrators in improving the current education system in the country.

The students’ learning and progress will culminate with a research output in Dissertation 1 and 2 which are scaffolded by lecture series, round table discussions, and masterclasses in the duration of the program.

Teaching and Learning Methods

The graduate studies program of the Institute puts premium on in-depth and adequate knowledge and understanding of academic and theoretical frameworks which are translated into research-based academic tasks. This specialized nature of the program prepares the students to become thinking teacher professionals as they collaborate and co-construct knowledge by investigating educational and societal trends and issues using different disciplinal lenses, frameworks and paradigms.  Specifically, the program will be delivered using the following modes:

To address the distinct needs of the graduate studies, the courses are designed for the learners to collaborate and co-construct knowledge with their colleagues and professors through research-based activities.  This approach is rooted on the learning paradigm of the university where critical, reflective, and creative thinking is fostered. 

Through this approach, the students explore and investigate educational and societal trends and issues using different disciplinal lenses to make sense of the different perspectives and make connections of their learnings on different courses. In addition, students develop the capacity to understand concepts in multiple viewpoints and the ability to integrate these viewpoints into a broader conceptual framework of analysis. 

The courses are delivered using a combination of face-to-face and online discussions using the learning management system or Canvas. Face-to-face discussions are done on a designated class schedule, while the readings, videos, and other learning materials are made available in the learning management system. Likewise, extended assessments and discussions are given through Canvas.

The courses are taught using the combination of the two modes where students will be given opportunities for mentorship through various supplementary activities in the department. The students will also work with their fellow graduate studies students and faculty members through consultations and discourses. 

Assessment and Research

The completion of courses under the program is dependent on the accomplishment of assessment tasks negotiated by the professor and the students for the semester. The program makes use of research-based outputs and community and field exposures as forms of assessments. These course outputs prepare students for the comprehensive examination and thesis writing towards the end of the program. 

The comprehensive examination measures the students’ ability to synthesize their learning throughout the program through a publishable research or an empirical essay. This same research or essay can be expounded further in writing their thesis, which is a final requirement for awarding of the degree. Through these assessments, students will be trained to produce quality publishable research papers and will enable them to understand and appreciate research as a way of life in the teaching profession.


The university offers various scholarship programs for teachers from the government and private institutions as well as alumni of FEU.
