School of Education Divisions

The School of Education is organized into two academic divisions:

  • Advanced Education & Research Services (formerly Foundations, Educational Research & Human Studies)
  • Professional Teacher Preparation (formerly Teacher Education & Public Service)

Division of Advanced Education & Research Services

This division covers education theories and practices, educational psychology and research, and educational technology. Courses taught by AERS faculty members are taken by students in all the School of Education programs and form the core structure of their educational development.

AERS faculty members also advise all undeclared education majors in the undergraduate and graduate programs.

Division of Professional Teacher Preparation

This division focuses on the pedagogical component of educator preparation with an emphasis on diversity in an effort to meet the needs of the island’s public school system. Upon completion of our educator preparation programs, candidates meet the certification requirements for Guam. The Master of Education programs develop and advance candidates’ skills to meet high need areas to support our local and regional school districts.

PTP faculty members advise all students who are declared majors of the respective programs.
