USeP to offer law, medicine courses

THE UNIVERSITY of Southeastern Philippines (USeP) may offer law and medicine courses by school year 2019.

Dr. Lourdes Generalao, USeP president, said the medicine course will be offered in their campus in Tagum City, Davao del Norte while the College of Law will be in their main campus in Bo. Obrero.

 Generalao said they would be offering those new courses to make law and medicine programs affordable. The university, she said, already completed the conduct of feasibility study if it is viable for them to offer those courses.

 “We hope to offer these by 2019,” Generalao said.

 Established in 1978, the Davao-based state university has four campuses: Bo. Obrero (main) and Mintal in this city; Apokon in Tagum City; Mabini in Compostela Valley and Bislig City in Surigao del Sur.

 Currently, the university offers graduate and undergraduate academic programs in the fields of engineering, arts and sciences, economics, business, computing, governance, development, resource management, technology, agriculture and forestry.

 The USeP is an integration of four state institutions, particularly, the Mindanao State University-Davao, the University of the Philippines-Master of Management Program in Davao, the Davao School of Arts and Trades, and the Davao National Regional Agricultural School.

 “We envisioned this to become the premier research university,” Generalao said.

 Recently, the university served as among the partners of Social Entrepreneurship Technology and Business Institute for education behind bars program in Davao City Jail in Ma-a. The teachers of the university were tapped to teach 70 inmates.
