Both the BSEd English and the BSEd Filipino programs are given a Level IV reaccredited status by the Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACCUP).  According to the AACCUP Manual on Accreditation,  the Level IV Re-Accredited Status is only awarded to academic programs which are highly respected and very high quality programs in the Philippines with prestige and authority comparable to similar programs in excellent foreign universities.  

Moreover, both programs are also awarded the  Certificate of Program Compliance (COPC) issued by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).  This  is a recognition that the specific degree programs being offered by SUCs/LUCs are fully compliant with the CHED policies, standards, and guidelines.

Over the years, the department has produced  graduates who have landed not only teaching but also supervisorial positions in the local, regional, national, and international levels.

Despite the changing educational landscape brought by the pandemic, the LD continues to break barriers in reaching the students, to champion the cause of education, and to impact positive changes that affect the present generation and beyond.
