Reviews of BEEd in English graduates:

Ritchil B. Pacenio-gumpic
Studied BSEd in English (slightly different course)
at Benguet State University , La Trinidad
Graduated: 2008

About my college education:
It was an interesting course for me to take but my eagerness to read, learn and acquire the knowledge made the course's difficulties seem enjoyable. There are a huge number of skills required during the 4 long years I have had with my course – math skills, logical skills, hard work and most of all language skills of both written and spoken communication skills. Above all things I am thankful I took education as my course because now I understand how important it is to enjoy what I do and I do it best - teach others what I know.

My current job:
Full Time Pre School Teacher, Part Time On- Line Outsourcing, Part Time Marketing Coordinator, Part Time On Line Writer and Blogger.

Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes, I am currently using professional education courses, statistical tools under test measurement and evaluation, curriculum development and teaching reading, writing, listening and speaking. Lessons about grammar, rhetoric, literature and communicative English.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
1 Week

Do I recommend studying BSEd in English:
Yes, I would recommend this course to others who find passion in sharing what they learned. There is a big market and wide employment opportunities for all education graduates. Once you get employed you'll find that teaching others is like sharing a part of your life to them and when they come back to you after 5 or 10 years remembering what you taught them is so amazing. When you find contentment in what you do, can make ends meet and if a wise spender, then the salary level is never a problem.
