About Us


The Department of Mathematics and Science Education (DMSE) has the responsibility of primarily training high quality mathematics, science and computer studies teachers for Botswana's rapidly growing education section. We do welcome students from other countries who might find our programmes attractive. DMSE provides quality instruction and professional support to both pre-service and in-service mathematics, science and computer teachers at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The current undergraduate degree programme offerings of the Department are of two types viz. Bachelor of Education (Science), a pre-service degree, and Bachelor of Education (Secondary) an in-service degree. At the post-graduate level, the department offers a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) in biology, chemistry, computer studies, mathematics and physics for students who have graduated from relevant BSc degree. At the graduate level, the department offers MEd, MPhil and PhD in mathematics education and science education.

DMSE-INSET is the in-service section of the Department. Working closely with the Department of Teacher Training and Development of the Ministry of Education and Skills Development, DMSE-INSET provides in-service workshops for computer, mathematics and science teachers working in the senior secondary schools. DMSE-INSET also provides support to strengthen the structure of computer, mathematics and science departments in these schools in order to encourage a spirit of collegiality and reflection on the teaching-learning process.
