Curriculum Rationale:

Based on he Guidelines for the Implementation of CMO 46 s. 2012, this PSG implements the “shift to learning competency-based standards/outcomes-based education”. It specifies the “core competencies” expected of Bachelor of Library and Information Science (BLIS) graduates regardless of the type of HEI they graduate from. However, in recognition of the spirit of outcomes-based education-which puts premium in the achievement of learning outcomes through different strategies-and in recognition of the typology of HEIs, this PSG also provides ample space for HEIs to innovate in the curriculum, in line with the assessment of how best to achieve learning outcomes in their particular contexts and their respective missions.

Policies and standards int he Library and Information Science (LIS) program are necessary for the highest level of quality desired for the education and training of library and information science professionals. They are meant to institutionalize the profession’s central function of providing quality information service to library/information center clientele or users. Its purpose is to make LIS education responsive to the challenges of society’s changing information needs brought about by rapid technological changes and in keeping with the need to make LIS professionals globally competitive.

Curriculum Description:

The LIS curriculum is designed to equip the professional with the composite knowledge, skills, attitudes, and tools to enable him/her to be responsive to the changing information needs of society.

The Computer Science Society embraces its Mission to promote the Computer Science Course, to guide and prepare the students, to grow and strengthen the bonds of each member as one family, and to utilize the resources of the program to provide service to society and emphasize to students the need of lifelong learning, ethical conduct and an understanding of the diverse social context in which Computer Science is practiced. We furthermore seek to provide excellence in activities and outreaches to develop the community of all Computer Science Students to help and support its members to reach their goals in the ever advance, 21st century.
