HISTORY OF MEU HISTORY OF MEU From our establishment in 1939, Middle East University (MEU) has strived to be a diverse institution accepting of people from all cultures and backgrounds. As a higher-education institution operated by the global Seventh-day Adventist denomination, MEU is connected to the second largest Christian education system in the world; second only to that of the Roman Catholic Church. This allows the University to benefit from a constant flow of international staff and students from throughout the world, fostering an intellectually and internationally open environment. Originally founded as the...
Campus Campus MEU’s unique location sets us apart from other institutions of higher education throughout Lebanon. Our University is situated on 30 hectares of lush green hillside in Sabtieh and we prides ourself as possessing one of the remaining “green areas” at the outskirts of Beirut’s urban sprawl. In a survey recently distributed to students, nearly 60% listed the campus environment as their favorite aspects of the University.

Teaching Diploma

Teaching Diploma

The TD is offered to those who are completing or have completed a bachelor’s degree in an appropriate area of study taught in elementary and/or secondary schools. This program, with concentrations in Elementary Education and Secondary Education, serves the needs of university graduates who plan to become schoolteachers, or those who have already had some experience in teaching but lack adequate academic preparation. A teaching diploma requires 16 core credits and 6 “method” credits, for a total of 22.

A Teaching Diploma will allow graduates to possess all of the necessary qualifications, credentials, and skills needed to teach in either an elementary or secondary school setting. Since the Lebanese government has recently tightened its restrictions on teachers and is beginning to require teaching diplomas of all teachers, a diploma is now more essential than ever. At MEU, we offer Teaching Diplomas including curricula which will prepare teachers for immediate success
