Connie L. 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.

Four types of programs are offered in the Department of Teacher Education leading to different credentials for different purposes. The Master of Science in Education and Health Sciences is an advanced degree for professional educators, which requires a minimum of 30 semester credit hours. Persons can select from several options representing a specialized field, or concentration. In addition to the concentration courses, students earning the master's also complete 12–13 hours in foundations of education and research, known as the core courses to complete the required minimum of 30 hours.

Second, the department offers programs that lead to a state of Ohio teaching license. These programs are for persons who hold a bachelor’s degree and wish to pursue a teaching license at the post-baccalaureate level. Students who are successful in a licensure program have the option to earn the Master of Science in Education and Health Sciences by completing the 12–13 hours of core courses and the minimum requirement of 30 semester hours.

The department also offers programs that lead to a state of Ohio endorsement. This credential is added to a valid state of Ohio teaching license and signifies specialized expertise in school settings.

Fourth, the department offers programs that lead to a University of Dayton graduate certificate. These programs also signify specialized expertise and often are the same as or similar to endorsement programs. Persons do not need to hold a valid state of Ohio teaching license to be eligible for a graduate certificate, but some certificate programs may require prior teaching experience for admission.
