During the seventies, BZU offered a teacher education program, or what it was called at that time a teaching certificate program. It was also the first shortly thereafter to offer a master’s program in education. At the beginning of the 2010/2011 academic year, the Department of Education and Psychology developed into the Faculty of Education, which included the Department of Curriculum and Teaching.
The Curriculum and Teaching Department offers four programs which aim to prepare teachers of the upper basic school level (grades 5-10), 23 educational qualification diploma programs for the teachers of the secondary schools, and master's level program to prepare specialists in education, in addition to teaching English as a Foreign language (TEFL).
The faculty staff includes PhD holders from prestigious universities who teach, conduct research and provide educational and consulting services to the Palestinian community and the Palestinian Ministry of Education.
