Preparation of Teachers for Multicultural Secondary Schools (MULTICUL)

The MULTICUL program offers students an opportunity to study possible solutions to the problem of developing racial and cultural harmony. The program is designed to deal with as many ethnic groups as possible.

Multiculturalism is a basic characteristic of our society as well as of our schools; therefore, potential teachers should prepare themselves to meet realistic situations. Three of the experiences that the MULTICUL program uses in the preparation of potential teachers are 

  • specialized or elective courses offered in many major departments;
  • courses designed especially for MULTICUL students by the Department of Educational Studies; and
  • laboratory experiences in multicultural communities, social and professional organizations, and schools.
