THE UNIVERSITY’S Psychology program was declared a Center of Development (COD) by the Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) last Dec. 20, following a rigorous review process.

“CODs serve as potent catalysts for world class scholarships, best practices, innovative curriculum, research and extension and professional development,” CHEd said in a memorandum.

The psychology program of UST is the lone COD, while the programs of University of the Philippines-Diliman, Ateneo de Manila University, and De La Salle University were named Centers of Excellence (COE).

The criteria for COE and COD are Instructional Quality (45 percent), Research Publications (30 percent), Extension and Linkages (20 percent), and Institutional Qualifications (five percent).

UST programs in Literature, Philosophy, Music Education, Nursing, Architecture, Medicine, Teacher Education, Chemistry, and Biology are Centers of Excellence, while the Civil Engineering program is a Center of Development. Nikka Lavinia G. Valenzuela
