Welcome to the Department of Education Sciences!
Our Department offers a variety of academic programs in all level of studies in Greek and/or in English. Specifically, the Department offers two four-year undergraduate programs: one in Early Childhood Education and one in Primary Education; postgraduate programs in Educational Management and Leadership, Special (Inclusive) Education, Early Childhood Education, and Technologies of Learning and Communication; as well a doctoral program in Education Sciences.
Our programs are offered through conventional modes of teaching and learning on campus as well as online in digital classrooms by distinguished academic staff (Academic research staff as well as Special Teaching Personnel) with a noteworthy track record in the various subfields of the Education Sciences nationally and internationally, as well as a vivid presence in the educational and social affairs in Cyprus.
The Department’s central goals are to offer the best possible education to the future educators who will be called upon to serve the profession in different settings and forms (public or private, for adults or children); to support and enhance the professional development of in-service teachers; and to promote the emergence of new local scientists in the field of Education. Our vision is to help foster those kinds of knowledges, skills and attitudes among our students, and through student-centered approaches, that will enable them to contribute productively in the educational, cultural and social arena in Cyprus and beyond.
The Department holds numerous collaborations for teaching and research purposes, participating in a variety of national, European and internationally-funded research projects, working together with a great number of scientific and research collaborators in the field of Education from Cyprus, Greece, other countries in Europe and beyond. Further, our Department hosts centers and labs with significant research activity in the field of education, such as the Learning in Early Childhood and Education Lab, the Educational Research and Evaluation Lab, the Inquiry in Science and Math Education Research Group, and the Assistive Technology Lab.
As for our graduates, they are employed as educators in public or private preschools and primary schools, as school assistants, as education staff in specialized centers for learning and play, in research centers, and in academic institutions.
