The degrees Bachelor of Early Childhood Education and Bachelor of Special Needs Education focuses on teaching the elementary pupils from Kinder to Grade 6 whereas the Bachelor of Secondary Education Program is for those who want to teach in Grade 7 to Grade 12.


Five decades consist of major milestones in the life of the College of Education. The accomplishments and impact of the College have been formidable.

In l963, the College of Education was established as one of the seven academic units of Trinity University of Asia, then Trinity College of Quezon City, under the supervision of Dean Ciriaco Santos. From its humble beginnings, it played a significant role in the growth of the institution. In 1964, Dominga L. Reyes took charge of the department until Juana Abellera Mercado took over as dean until her demise in 1973. Dr. Arturo M. Guerrero, the second President of Trinity College, took charge of the unit until August 21, 1975, then handed down the responsibilities of deanship to Dr. Kate C. Botengan who was also in-charge of the Graduate School. Prof. Norma G. Du was appointed Dean in 1981 until her retirement in April 1998. In the same year Dr. Deana R. Aquino became the Dean of the College until her retirement in 31 May 2004. Dr. Adela Guarino-Gillette became the Acting Dean from 2004-2005, and finally became the Dean from 2005-2010, until her retirement on April 2010. Dr. Wilhelmina Q. Tomas was appointed Officer-in-Charge of the College on June 1, 2010 until May 2012. Dr. Angelita P. Bugnalen took over the deanship from 2013 up to 2016 and was succeeded by Dr. Juliet P. Tuazon as OIC for school year 2016-2017.

To develop community awareness, the College, through the efforts of Dr. Kate Botengan and Professor Norma G. Du, started the Community Outreach for Preschool Education (COPE) in 1982. Two years later the Review Assistance Program for the Empowerment of Drop-Outs (REAPED) was established. These two programs continue to give opportunity to our student-teachers and faculty members to serve the needs of the community through its feeding program, preschool education, and review classes for drop-outs. This service training is a form of volunteerism. The program has a strong linkage with the local government, formerly with Barangay Damayang Lagi and now with Barangay Tatalon, Quezon City.

In 1985, the College of Education was granted a five-year, Level II accreditation status by the Association of Christian Schools and Colleges-Accrediting Agency Inc. In the Re-Survey held in l990, it again obtained a five-year accreditation status. In the l990 Philippine Board Examination for Teachers (PBET), the College of Education received a national rank of 86th out of the 555 schools all over the Philippines and a 28th rank in the National Capital Region (NCR) out of the 67 colleges. In the l992 PBET, the College of Education attained a higher ranking being 69th out of 300 institutions and again, the 28th rank in the National Capital Region. This was followed by another five years in the Re-Survey conducted by the ACSC-AAI on November 22, l995. In 1996, the College was awarded a Level III accreditation status.

In compliance with DECS Order No. 3, S. l993, the College of Education set-up a Ladderized scheme in the Teacher Education Curriculum aside from its 4-year Bachelor’s degree program. In the succeeding years, true to its mission of providing quality and relevant education in responding to national and global realities, curricular changes and development were instituted. The Ladderized scheme program was phased out to give way to a revitalized 4-year degree program in Bachelor in Elementary Education and Bachelor in Secondary Education. To fan the goal of honing a pool of highly competent faculty and students, the service-learning option became a part of the curriculum in the course of study of “Ethics and Values in Civil Society”. Herein, following the famous Brazilian educator, Paolo Freire, the students participate in civic engagement in societal problems, needs and concerns as they critically analyze their own social, cultural, political, and economic experiences in their daily lives. This also serves as a training ground to make volunteerism as a way of life, even after they graduate.

In 2001, the College of Education submitted to another accreditation. While the College obtained a three-year status, it has gained momentum to exert more effort in regaining its status. This was manifested in the ACSCU-AAI Interim Accreditation Report on February 2003 where most of the recommendations were acted upon and complied with highlighting many significant developments in the operation and management of the teacher education program.

As the world we live and work in has become very dynamic, changes have been made considerably in the landscape of the College of Education. In 2001, it has produced a 7th placer in the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) and has in its years of existence produced quite a number of Cum Laude and Magna Cum Laude professionals, now serving in all parts of the nation and the world.

In February 2004, the College of Education received a five-year accreditation status from ACSCU-AAI. In September 30, 2004, the College was awarded its Level 3 status, valid until April 2009. In the same year, the College of Education became the implementing unit of NSTP. Likewise, the Christian Education Department became part of the College of Education Family.

For SY 2005-2006, the College of Education revised its curriculum for Bachelor of Elementary Education and Bachelor of Secondary Education in compliance with CMO No. 30, Series 2004. Last June 2005, the College reopened its review classes for the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET), free of charge to our graduates who cannot afford to pay the review fees. In the licensure examinations for 2012, the BEED first takers garnered a 100% passing rate while the BSED graduates obtained a 92% passing rate.

For better familiarization and training of education students, the college transferred from the Barsam Building at the College Campus to the Basic Education Campus last November 2007 and is now occupying the Cabanban Building where its office and airconditioned classrooms are located.

To cushion the impact of the transitional years of the implementation of the K-12 Curriculum, the administration and management of the College of Education was entrusted to the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) under Dr. Glorina Divina P. Orozco in from SY 2017 to 2019. Since then, the college had been renamed as the Education Department under the College of Arts, Sciences, and Education (CASE). Currently, the Dean of CASE is Dr. Howell T. Ho.

With its mission to develop future leaders of the nation and become change-managers in all facets of life, the Education Department is resolved to accelerate its development with a strong and highly qualified faculty, and a continuing service to God, the community, and fellowmen.
