Elementary & Secondary Education

The College of Education offers a five-year degree program that is designed to allow students to earn both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree, plus a Pennsylvania Teacher Certification, in five years instead of the traditional six. The Undergraduate major of Elementary & Secondary Education focuses on the development of a teacher candidate’s understanding of the aims and curricula of elementary & secondary schools, the purposes and methods employed in teaching all learners (including those with special needs and ELL), basic principles of research and testing, and the techniques of gathering and analyzing educational data.
