During the last decade of 20th century, school teachers in Pakistan found themselves under increasing pressure from parents and the government to help students develop their all round personality and professional attitude. Teachers today are required to meet the legitimate demands of the contemporary society.
These expectations can only be met if the teaching quality of teachers, professional expertise and understanding of the surroundings are enhanced. These requirements point to the need for a professionally oriented course like MA in Education which can enable teachers to examine, evaluate and reflect upon current practices in school at progressively deeper level. The Department of Education has set itself to produce qualified teachers, administrators, planners, curriculum designers and educational researchers who can bring suitable changes and improve educational standards. Facilities for regular classes of MA in Education, MPhil and research based PhD programs are available to produce scholars and researchers in the field of education.
The admission in MA education is made on the basis of candidates� academic record. However, MPhil and PhD admissions are made under HEC rules.
