Master of Arts in Humanities, Major in Women’s Studies
[Recognized by CHED  July 30, 1998]

Program Description

The commitments and thrusts of the Higher Education Gender and Development Accord executed by public and private Higher Education Institutions in October 2011, aimed at mainstreaming Gender in colleges and universities all over the country, are an offshoot of the increased awareness of the need to understand and address women issues. In line with this and to pursue the deeper objectives of existing legislation [Magna Carta for Women (RA 9710), the Anti-Sexual Harassment Act (RA 7877) and the Anti-Violence against Women and their Children (RA 9262)], the Master of Arts in Humanities, major in Women’s Studies of St. Scholastica’s College is designed for interested advocates on gender and development and mainstream educators. The program considers the woman’s perspective as a vital element in the education process and gives recognition to women and the women’s movement as major forces in forging a humane and ecologically sound future in the third millennium. It stresses the interplay of social categories of gender, class, and ethnicity in the various events and realities experienced and studied.

Program Objectives

At the end of the degree program, students will be able to:

1. Become more conscious of and deepen their understanding of the woman question;
2. Gain a new perspective relevant to their life as well as to the efforts of women and men to improve their lives;
3. Develop gender sensitivity and a gender-free perspective in the study and creation of various print and non-print materials;
4. Enhance skills in facilitation, decision-making and leadership; and
5. Become effective advocates of women’s rights.

Master of Music in Music Education
[CHED Temporary Permit # 151 s. 2000]
[School of Music designated COE in Music on April 15, 2013]

Program Description

The Master of Music in Music Education is a two-year course of study designed to provide students with a broader perspective/knowledge of the various skills and teaching strategies in music.  Music education is a legacy of St. Scholastica’s College (SSC) to education in the Philippines. SSC School of Music is the first music school in the country, which provided formal music education to both young and adults. It was founded in 1907 by Sr. Baptista Battig, OSB, a missionary Benedictine nun from Tutzing, Germany who was a concert pianist before her convent days and started developing the music talents of Filipinos by giving piano lessons using a second hand piano. While sustaining a tradition of excellence in performance, SSC’s School of Music has developed a second emphasis in the field of classroom teaching. Hence, the undergraduate program of the school, Bachelor of Music in Music Education with a principal instrument (piano, guitar, voice, violin, viola, cello, double bass, percussion, flute, clarinet or other wind instruments), prepares the students to become competent classroom music teachers of K-12, solo and collaborative performers of their principal instrument and teachers of the same instrument. Graduates in music education are currently employed in known schools in the country and abroad as faculty members and as administrators for music programs.

SSC recognizes the need to provide more opportunities for professional growth in the field of music.  Thus, SSC offers a graduate program in music education to update music teachers with the latest trends in education, innovative teaching strategies, materials and technology as a tool for teaching, as well as further develop their skills in teaching and administration.  Research is an important component of the course to keep the students knowledgeable about studies made and to conduct their own researches in music.

This expansion in trust is paralleled by a remarkable growth in its library holdings through continuous acquisition of new books, scores, CDs, videos and other materials and donations of library collections from well-known local and international artists.  The School of Music’s existing network of music preparatory programs, performance groups, current technological equipment, among others, all stand ready  to serve the laboratory phases of the curricula on the graduate level.  A recipient of the Commission on Higher Education’s (CHED) “2013-2014 Center of Excellence” award and with its outstanding faculty, SSC’s School of Music is in a position to offer a graduate program in Music Education in response to requests made by numerous individuals and alumnae who desire to pursue postgraduate studies in music.  With this graduate program, SSC can make a significant contribution to the musical life and development of the country.

Program Objectives

At the end of the degree program, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate advanced competencies in music education to teach all types of learners which include Grade School, High School, and Tertiary levels;
2. Be knowledgeable and skilled in performance, music theory and analysis, history and literature, conducting and research;
3. Exhibit graduate-level perspectives on contemporary issues and problems in music education like curriculum development, teaching methodology, innovations, assessment and evaluation, multidisciplinary concepts and program management; and
4. Acquire the necessary musical knowledge and skills, imbued with Filipino, Christian and Benedictine values to become leaders in music education capable of awakening cultural and social values among the Filipino people.

Master of Music in String Pedagogy
(Violin, Viola, Cello, or Double Bass)
[Acknowledged by CHED November 7, 2006]
[School of Music designated COE in Music on April 15, 2013]

Program Description

The Master of Music in String Pedagogy is a two-year course of study designed to provide students with a broader perspective/knowledge of the various skills and techniques in string pedagogy.  Music education is a legacy of St. Scholastica’s College (SSC) to education in the Philippines. SSC School of Music is the first music school in the country, which provided formal music education to both the young and adults. It was founded in 1907 by Sr. Baptista Battig, OSB, a missionary Benedictine nun from Tutzing, Germany who was a concert pianist before her convent days and started developing the music talents of Filipinos by giving piano lessons using a second hand piano. Through the years, SSC expanded from a program in piano performance to other instruments like strings (violin, viola, cello, and double bass), winds, voice, and guitar. The Philippine Research for the Development of Instrumental Soloists (PREDIS) founded by Sister Mary Placid Abejo, OSB, Dean of the School of Music and Prof. Basilio Manalo, violin virtuoso, begins training in string performance at an early age. Thus, it prepares the students for a degree course when they become young adults. SSC has developed performers, winners in music competitions, and delegates to international music ensembles like the Asian Youth Orchestra (AYO),  Hongkong, the Southeast Asian Youth Orchestra and Wind Ensemble (SAYOWE), Thailand, and the World Youth Orchestra (WYO), Germany.

While sustaining a tradition of excellence in performance, SSC’s School of Music has developed a second emphasis in the field of string pedagogy (studio teaching). The school recognizes that string graduates are always involved in teaching strings in addition to performing. Thus, SSC pioneers the offering of Master of Music in String Pedagogy in the country to provide training and develop skills in teaching for all kinds of learners both the young and adults.

Cognate in Women’s Studies
[ENDORSED BY CHED APRIL 8, 2013]             

Program Description

The commitments and thrusts of the Higher Education Gender and Development Accord executed by public and private Higher Education Institutions in October 2011, aimed at mainstreaming Gender in colleges and universities all over the country, are an offshoot of the increased awareness of the need to understand and address women issues. In line with this and to pursue the deeper objectives of the Magna Carta for Women (RA 9710), the Anti-Sexual Harassment Act (RA 7877) and the Anti-Violence against Women and their Children (RA 9262), among other related laws, the Cognate Program on Women’s Studies of St. Scholastica’s College is designed for interested advocates on gender and development. Following from the recognition of women and the women’s movement as major forces in forging a humane and ecologically sound future in the third millennium, this program considers the women’s perspective a vital element in the education process. It stresses the interplay of social categories of gender, class, and ethnicity in the various events and realities experienced and studied.

This certificate program consists of six (6) subjects and, if desired, the eighteen (18) units can be credited towards a Master of Arts in Humanities, major in Women’s Studies.
