Brief on the School

The  School of Education was established in 2008 in a Satellite Campus of Moi University (South Nyanza Satellite Campus) in Rongo Town, and then moved to the then Moi Institute of Technology popularly known as MIT. In June, 2012, the school was part of Rongo University college, a constituent of Moi university’s main campus at Kitere Hill. We started with only one undergraduate program, B.Ed. Arts, all self-sponsored, admitting the first cohort of 145 Government sponsored students in 2012. The school has expanded its student population to over 2,500, as well as its programs to include B.Ed Science, B.Ed. in Special Needs Education, in addition to post graduate programs in Educational Leadership and Policy, Curriculum Development, and Educational Psychology. Our students continue to make us proud as a school; in 2018, one of them was able to showcase how we can produce methanol from sweet potatoes. We have a student population, many of whom do so well during teaching practice that schools retain them after the exercise.

The School of Education, is headed by the Dean who is the administrative head of the School and is run through three (3) departments of Psychology, Curriculum, Instruction and Media, and Management and Foundations. Each of the departments is headed by a Head of Department.

The School has three departments which are responsible for teaching:

  1. Department of Curriculum Instruction and Educational Media Studies
  2. Department of Management and Foundations
  3. Department of Educational Psychology and Science headed by Dr. Shadrack Ogoma.
