Since 1996 Tribhuvan Unviersity (TU) has been implementing three-year Bachelor programmes with annual examination system in Faculties of Education, Management and Humanities and Social Sciences and Institute of Science and Technology. Recently, duration of Bachelor programmes in those faculties and institute has been made four years by adding one more year. In conformity with this, Faculty of Education (FoE) is going to introduce four-year Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) with two specialization subject areas (specialization major and specialization minor subject) in 2072 BS instead of offering single specialization area like in three-year B.Ed.
Accordingly, students of four-year B.Ed. programme will have to study one subject area as specialization major and the next as specialization minor area selecting from among Nepali Education, English Education, Mathematics Education, Science Education (physical science), Health and Physical Education, Population Education, History Education, Geography Education, Economics Education, and Political Science Education. Students may also study one of the courses from among Science Education (Biological Science), Health Education, Physical Education, vocational education, Primary Education, Early Childhood Development Education, Non-formal Education and Education Management as specialization minor.
Four-year B.Ed. with annual examination system is a professional as well as academic programme designed for preparing competent teachers who can teach two subjects at secondary level.
In Nepal, nearly 500 private/community campuses are offering 4 years B.Ed program with affiliation from Tribhuvan University.
