Department of Education Sciences

It is with great pleasure that I extend a warm welcome to the newly updated website of the Department of Education Sciences of the European University Cyprus! Join me for a presentation of our education programs, and introduce you to the academic, personnel, our research and scientific collaborators and our undergraduate, graduate and Ph.D. students.

The Department of Education Sciences offers two 4-year undergraduate programs, one in Early Childhood Education and the other in Elementary School Education, masters program with concentrations in Educational Leadership, Special (Inclusive) Education, in Early Childhood Education, and Technologies of Learning and Communication, as well as the Ph.D. program in Educational Sciences. Currently, all programs are offered in Greek. The Department offers its program through the conventional on campus mode of delivery as well as with distance education teaching technologies. 

The Department of Education is staffed by distinguished personnel (faculty and special teaching personnel), with important national and international activities in the areas of Educational Sciences, as well as public presence in educational happenings in Cyprus. Since its foundation the Department focuses on high quality education both within and outside the University, seeking to prepare our students for their future teaching role, their professional development for in-service teachers and the development of new researchers in Cyprus and abroad. Our vision is the development of our students’ knowledge, skills, thinking processes and attitudes in all levels, so that they will be in a position to contribute productively in the education, cultural and social happenings in national and international level.

For both teaching and research (both national and international) purposes, the Department collaborates with a large number of scientists, researchers from the educational field in Cyprus, Greece and other European countries.

As far as our students, you can meet our alumni working as teachers in private and public pre-schools, elementary and middle schools throughout Greece and Cyprus, as teacher aids, as educational personnel in specialized centers of play and learning, in research centers and in academic institutions.
