Discipline: Education



This investigation looked into the integration of peace and justice education in the general education subject of the college during the second semester of academic year 2010-2011. It also established whether or not the integration of peace and justice education significantly varies as perceived by the students when they are grouped and compared according to age, sex and department. The descriptive research design was used. Sample size was determined using Slovin's formula. Respondents were randomly selected from the four departments of the college using simple random sampling. Frequency, percentage, mean and the one-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) facilitated the analysis of data. Result of the study disclosed that, respondents had ages below 18 years and majority were female and from the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management. The integration of peace and justice education was “very high”. The college students when grouped as to age, sex and department did not differ significantly as to their perceived integration of peace and justice education. Activities and strategies to maintain the high extent of integration of the peace and justice education, inclusion of such should be reflected in the syllabi and such should be promoted. Likewise, the same should be integrated in professional subjects across all programs.
