Various questions aroused by the visitors of www.glxspace.com regarding the equivalence of M.A. Education Degree to M.Ed. as their concerned departments failed to grant them to teaching allowance on the basis of M.A. Education. They Accounts Offices demanded them they should prove that M.A. Education is equivalent to M.ED. For their convenience I have received a letter from my visitors issued by Higher Education Commission that proves that M.A. Education is equivalent to M.Ed.
The proof of Higher Education Commission was in the following words of 25th meeting of the Equivalence Committee of erstwhile UGC held on 01-03-1990. The words are as under:
“The Committee considered the request of the Director, Institute of Education and Research University of the Punjab, Lahore and observed that the University of the Punjab has launched Master of Science Education (MS.ED), M.Ed (Science) & B.S.ED Courses for Science graduates on the pattern of M.A. Education, M.Ed. having the similar entrance requirements as well as duration. It was therefore decided to recognize the degrees of B.S. Ed, M.S. Ed, M.Ed. (Science) as equivalent to B.Ed, M. Ed, M.A (Education), M.B.E, MA. Tech. Edu (Industrial Arts) for the purpose of appointment to the post (s) in the Ministries/Departments of Education/Universities in the related fields of education.”
Hence proved from the above reference that Master of Education Degree is equivalent to M. Ed.
