We envision the School of Teacher Education and Humanities as a steward in the service and development of humanistic, spiritual, eloquent and mature and excellent educators and public servants conscious of their cultural values and responsibilities as members of the academic community and/ or of the nation in particular and the worldwide village in general.
We dedicate ourselves to develop unique persons as mature Christians and cultured professionals capable of helping transform the community and country to become a better place to live in through liberal education.

The School of Teacher Education and Humanities (STEH) is the merging of three independent schools namely: School of Arts and Sciences, School of Education and the School of Public Administration and Governance. These three schools were merged into one school, effective School Year 2016-2017. STEH has eight departments, the Christian Faith Education Department, Criminal Justice Education Department, Languages Department, Mathematics Department, Physical Education Department, Psychology, Human Services and Social Work Department and Social Sciences and Philosophy Department.
This school promotes freedom of expression, creativity and critical thinking of students to easily cope with the challenges of the new generation, and impact society in a meaningful way. Its pool of faculty dedicates themselves to develop unique persons as mature Christians and cultured professionals capable of transforming the community, and country to become a better place to live in through liberal education.
STEH is a world-class steward in the service of development of humanistic, spiritual, eloquent, mature and excellent educators, and public servants conscious of their cultural values and responsibilities as members of the academic community and/or of the nation in particular and the worldwide village in general.
The school fosters the spirit of nationalism that is enhanced by a common identity evolving from the spirit of bayanihan, and eventually working towards regional and international cooperation for peace and justice in the community of nations.
STEH equips the students with the proper skills and values to achieve self-reliance and economic security and to become effective instruments of national prosperity. Not only that, it aims to produce socially responsible and committed citizens who are aware of their roles in achieving sustainable economic growth and promotion of the Filipino peoples’ quality of life.

- SEAMEO SEA Teacher Project Implementer
The SEA Teacher Project or the “Pre-Service Student Teacher Exchange in Southeast Asia” is a project that aims to provide opportunity for pre-service student teachers from universities in Southeast Asia to have teaching experiences (practicum) in schools in other countries in Southeast Asia.
Based on the SEAMEO seven priority areas for the eleven SEAMEO Member countries, one of its priority areas is building and strengthening capacity of teachers in the region and “Revitalizing Teacher Education”.
The exchange is preferably for 4th year students whose majors are in Mathematics, Science, English, Physical Education, Pre-school and Elementary Education. The duration is for one month and based on the mechanism of cost sharing basis. Students’ roles and responsibilities are assigned weekly during the one month period (observe, assist in teaching, teach and reflect). Moreover, the host universities in Thailand and Indonesia will provide mentors to supervise and monitor the students throughout the practicum period.
The partnership of Saint Mary’s University with SEAMEO (Southeast Asian Ministers of Education) started in 2017. Each participating university is responsible for mentoring the student teachers in the schools of their respective countries.
To date, SMU has sent five (5) batches of Marian pre-service teachers and received five (5) batches as well.
