Abstract

This study was conducted in line with the University of Nueva Caceres’ (UNC) Research Agenda which provided foundation in improving new knowledge and conceptualizing new strategies to enhance the education process of students. This study was conducted to investigate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the tertiary science education curriculum in UNC as perceived by science teachers and students. The research used interview and direct observation to gather pertinent data. The data were then analyzed using a conceptual framework. Through answers from interviews which are primarily from the observation of the participants then it categorized into strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. The analyzed data from students and observations of the researchers shows an evident weakness in the construction of the tertiary science education curriculum of the UNC. The following conclusions were made: the science education curriculum of UNC is not aligned to what is required by the K-12 curriculum in terms of teacher preparation, the science education curriculum of UNC affects the general performance of teachers to effectively instruct the students due to the failure of the curriculum to integrate related disciplines connected to Physical Science such as Mathematics, the science education curriculum also imposes a limitation of probable learning due to the lack of materials needed for some activities, there exist problems that affect the productivity of the students which are performance and skills-related, and there are ways to improve the current level of effectiveness of tertiary science curriculum through the integration of partnership possibilities with other universities and maintenance of current innovations
