About the College of Education
The teacher education program of Holy Name University, then Holy Name College (HNC), is one of the first collegiate programs offered when the school formally opened in June 1947. In July 1950, its Bachelor of Science in Education program received government recognition. Five years later, in June 1955, the Collegiate in Home Economics was granted government recognition. Two years later, the Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education was also recognized.
It was during Fr. Lesage’s second term that DWC received government recognition to offer a four-year BSEED-HE and Master of Arts in Guidance and Counseling.
In 1974, Dr. Guadalupe Saturinas was designated dean of the College. In 1988, Dr. Saturinas went on study leave to finish her doctoral degree. Dr. Justiniana Dohig was appointed acting dean.
In June 2009, Dr. Roque Bongcac assumed the deanship of the College. In 2018, Prof. Jaremilleta Arawiran was appointed chairperson.
The College is Level II–PAASCU accredited and is recognized as Center of Development in Teacher Education by the Commission on Higher Education.
