Head of Department of Educational Foundation and Social Science

Welcome to the Department of Educational Foundations, Faculty of Education, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. This department is committed to the highest ideals of National Philosophy of Education. At this department, students are the focus of all our educational endeavors. We strive to involve, engage, and enrich their lives in a welcoming environment in which they participate as members of a unique learning community. Students of all categories are able to shape, develop, and expand academic. They become active partners in learning. They are exposed to experiences that shape human values such as integrity, respect, and commitment.

Our academic and non-academic staff inspire students to question, think critically, and explore. They are accessible, encouraging students to pursue in-depth inquiry and engage in lively discussions that further illuminate and expand learning. They are also create programs that respond to the needs of school community, whether it’s to answer Higher Education Ministry’s need for dedicated teachers and school administrators or for working adults who seek further education or to improve their skills and employment opportunities.

The department difference can be measured by the breadth and scope of the educational programs and experiences, guided by a dedicated academic staff who are determined to see that students succeed.
