Welcome to the SPU Iloilo website. It will answer some, if not all, of your questions about the College of Arts and Sciences which currently offers four programs: (1) AB English and Theater Arts, (2) AB Mass Communication, (3) BS Psychology, and (4) BS Biology. I am delighted to announce that we are presently working on our application to the Commission on Higher Education to offer AB International Studies, BS Medical Technology, BS Pharmacy and BS Radiological Technology.
The College of Arts and Sciences is one of the eight colleges of St Paul University Iloilo and its growth in terms of enrollees and programs offered is a blessing from the Almighty Father, achieved through the efforts of the dedicated CAS Academic Council, faculty members, staff, students, the Admissions Committee, and the Public Relations team. Together, we are all working towards the fulfillment of the vision-mission of the University and its tripartite function which is to provide “professional education through transformative teaching-learning, innovative research and responsive community service”.
Since quality Christian education, on a par with that of the best schools in the Philippines, is one of the priorities of the Paulinian academic community, faculty members are continuously sent to professional development trainings and they have just recently completed the Outcomes-Based Education (OBE) seminar-workshop on top of the trainings they already had on ICT integration in instruction, Learner-Centered Approach, and Understanding by Design (UBD)
This Academic Year 2012-2013, we in the College of Arts and Sciences will be constantly working on the integration of the four Paulinian advocacies in the curricula: (1) Peace-education, (2) Social Responsibility, (3) Environmental Stewardship, and (4) Pro-life. At this day and age, when information can be accessed almost anywhere and at anytime, and guidance from adults are inadequate, St. Paul University Iloilo is taking steps to fill the void left by the absence of gatekeepers. Students are in school eight hours, or more, every day and the integration of values in all instructional deliveries gives us rays of hope that Paulinians will incessantly make a difference in their community, country, and perhaps the world.
So dear parents, I am inviting you to bring your children to St. Paul University Iloilo and together let us form conscientious future professionals who will serve as catalysts of positive change.
