Teacher Education and Psychology

LCC’s Teacher Education and Psychology programs recognize the diversity of human intelligence and aspires to hone professionals who are deeply rooted in the fields of Social Sciences, Mathematics, Sciences, Languages, Arts, and Humanities.  LCC firmly believes that the human developers (teachers and psychology practitioners) constitute the most important human resource of our country. As such, the these programs uphold its ideals in honing future elementary, secondary, college teachers, and psychology practitioners who are imbued with the ideals, aspirations and traditions of Philippine life and culture and  equipped not only with the necessary pedagogical skills but also with the adequate and updated knowledge in their fields in line with institution’s goal of providing relevant education.

General Objectives

  • To develop professional teachers, English language specialists, and professional psychometricians  and psychologists who are committed to the deep sense of humane principles as well as the pursuit of truth, justice and peace;
  • To develop individuals imbued with a social conscience and an abiding faith in God and in his fellowmen, whose personal fulfillment is anchored on integrity, professional competence and social concern;
  • To develop individuals whose visions and interests are not only confined to their field of specialization but also who reach out for the welfare and progress of the society with whom they interact.
