Connie Bowman, Department Chairperson

The mission of the Department of Teacher Education is the development of reflective, competent, and humane teachers. Recognizing the value of balancing theory and practice in professional education, the department provides candidates and faculty with the opportunity to be of service and to do research in P-12 settings. It dedicates itself to the discovery, construction, and development of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that enable teachers to become educational leaders. The goal is to be a center of excellence in teacher education, thereby supporting continuing professional development and advocacy within the profession of teaching.

Students pursuing graduate work in the Department of Teacher Education have two options. 

  1. For those persons who are already licensed and wish to extend their knowledge, skills, and dispositions in a specialized field, the department offers several concentrations, identified by the admission code MSE.
  2. For those persons seeking licensure information, please see the section labeled "Licensure Requirements."

All students completing the Master of Science in Education must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours including the following core requirements.

Licensure Requirements

For those persons who have an undergraduate degree in a field other than education, the Department of Teacher Education offers programs leading to teacher licensure at the graduate level, identified by the admission code LIC. These licensure programs include early childhood education (LIC.ECE), middle childhood education (LIC.EMS), adolescence to young adult education (LIC.EYA), multiage education (LIC.EAG), and intervention specialist (LIC.EIS). All licensure programs include coursework, corresponding lab courses requiring field hours between 20-90 hours, and a clinical experience of 12 weeks full time in a classroom. Candidates who complete the requirements for licensure may choose to complete the core requirements for the master's degree, but it is not mandatory. Although candidates typically complete licensure prior to completing the master's degree, the coursework may be taken concurrently. If the candidate does wish to pursue the master's degree after completing the requirements for licensure, application to the appropriate master's degree program must be made.

In addition to the coursework required for the various licensure programs, the State of Ohio requires candidates to pass Praxis II Exams as a condition for license. Praxis requirements are specific to each licensure program. See advisor for details.

If candidates have student teaching as part of their program, they must apply for an assignment in the term prior to the student teaching term and must have satisfied all prerequisites and program requirements. Credit earned for student teaching does not apply to a master's degree program. Candidates must meet the approved reading requirements to qualify for the professional license.

The Department of Teacher Education also offers endorsement programs that can be added to an existing license or certificate. These programs are identified by the admission code END, and include reading endorsement (END.ERE), computer/technology endorsement (END.TEC), middle childhood generalist endorsement (END.EMS.GEN), prekindergarten special needs endorsement (END.ECE.PSN) and early childhood generalist endorsement (END.ECE).

The Department of Teacher Education also issues the following certificates:

  • Early Childhood Leadership and Advocacy (CER.ECL)
  • Technology Enhanced Learning (CER.TEL)

Adolescence to Young Adult Education (LIC.EYA and MSE.EYA)

Completion of the program requirements for adolescence to young adult education leads to provisional licensure in the State of Ohio for grades 7 - 12. Candidates must complete approved licensure program coursework in one of the following teaching concentration areas: earth sciences, integrated language arts, integrated mathematics, integrated science, integrated social studies, life sciences, and physical sciences. Concentration requirements also include professional education coursework. Candidates must pass the required PRAXIS II specialty area exam(s) prior to and the clinical experiences. Candidates must also pass the PRAXIS II Principles of Learning and Teaching prior to licensure.

Candidates may choose to complete the master's degree after completing the requirements for licensure by completing the core requirements for the master's degree. Student teaching hours will not count toward the 30 semester hour requirement for a master's degree.
