In 1925, PWC opened the School of Education.

In 1932, PWC earned government recognition as a UNIVERSITY, the first university for women in Asia founded by Asians.

The PWU School of Education believes that success in the teaching profession depends partly on the teacher’s broad foundation of education.

A general course of study provides this foundation in the freshmen year at the Freshmen Division.

As early as second year, the students are given opportunities to be aware of the realities of teaching through guided exposure activities and observation of school situations.

As part of the College community service, students engage themselves in the education of out-of-school children and youths through educational and recreational programs. Provision is made for leadership training, child development and adult education.

The School of Education gears itself to the training of educators who can be leaders in their fields: School Management curriculum design; alternative/mixed modes of delivery; and, in the preparation of instructional materials.



Welcome to the Philippine Women’s University School of Education!

For more than 80 years (1931-2014) PWU’s School of Education has established a name that is synonymous with quality in Philippine education.

We pioneered many “firsts” in the field of Philippine education. In the 1930s, we developed a distinctly Filipino approach to non-traditional education through our Early Childhood Education program using JASMS as our educational laboratory (today JASMS, or the Jose Abad Santos Memorial School, continues to provide Basic Education from the pre-school to the high school level). Although we initially enrolled only women, male students were admitted in the 1970s when PWU went coeducational further enriching the diversity that PWU fosters among its students.

Education at PWU is experienced-based, interdisciplinary and collaborative; under this philosophy we champion the belief that education must be linked to a person’s understanding of the role that he/she plays individually, in the family and in the greater life of the community.

At the Philippine Women’s University School of Education, we believe that all students are entitled to pursue exemplary education. We are a non-sectarian institution and welcome students from all over the Philippines as well as from overseas. PWU is committed to meeting the educational needs of each student in an environment that fosters their personal growth and cultural identity while giving them the skills that they need to meet the challenges of globalization.

Furthermore, the School of Education offers Masters Programs through Distance Education which enables maximum flexibility to people seeking to upgrade their educational qualifications through a combination of online and in-campus classes (or for Filipino students abroad, through specially-designed sessions timed to suit their visits home).

Come visit PWU’s School of Education in campus or virtually. We would be more than happy to answer your questions and introduce you to our PWU community.
