General Overview of the Department

The Curriculum and Arts Education degree programmes provide students with a greater understanding of curriculum and art subject issues in the education sector within as well as outside the Zimbabwean context. The programmes prepare students for careers as high school teachers, college lecturers, university lecturers, curriculum planners, language planners, policy makers, trainer-of-trainers such that they can fit very well in government and private institutions, industry and non-governmental organisations. Graduates are prepared to research various issues related within education systems at regional, national and international levels and to exercise informed decisions by drawing from both knowledge acquired and experience.

All the programmes are offered on Full-time, Part-time and Weekend bases to suit different circumstances of prospective students.
