College of Education
The Education program of the University is one of the first courses offered when Misamis Institute reopened in 1946 right after the war. The Bachelor of Science in Education (BSE) gained full government recognition in 1949. Four years later, the Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (BSEEd) and the Two-Year Junior Normal Home Economics Course received government recognitions.
In 1987, driven by its mission and vision to provide quality academic programs, the University submitted the Education, Liberal Arts and Commerce programs to Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA) for voluntary accreditation. The Education program was awarded Level I and Level II Accredited Status in 1988 and 1990, respectively. In 2011, PACUCOA awarded the Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) and Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd) Programs Level III Reaccredited Status valid until November 2014.
