Certificate / Cont. Education
The Center for Peace Education is one of Miriam College’s three advocacy centers. We promote a culture of peace through peace education and advocacy. To reach peace, we teach peace. Peace courses are offered in the College and peace concepts and values are infused in certain subjects in MC’s basic education units where students are trained in conflict resolution and peer mediation. Annually, Miriam College celebrates the International Day of Peace and the Mindanao Week of Peace. On both occasions, members of the community organize activities that raise awareness on peace issues of the day. During the Mindanao Week of Peace, community members raise funds to support peace-related causes as well as our twin school in Mindanao, the Rajah Muda High School.
This certificate program is a response to the need for a capacity-building program addressed to interested professionals who are either working within the formal school system or who may be working in other fields and careers that can benefit from the knowledge, tools/skills and value-orientations that would be learned in the said certificate program.
