The College of Education is a professional college whose major goal is to prepare individuals for future careers related to education. A wide range of programs is offered for teaching at the early childhood, middle childhood, and high school levels and for other educational positions. The college provides graduate study in a variety of professional education fields.

All undergraduate programs include a broad base of general education, intensive preparation in the subject matter field, and professional emphasis that combines theory with practice. Each program is thus designed to prepare students to enter their future career with a strong background in liberal arts, educational strategies and techniques, and a thorough understanding of teaching and learning processes.

The College of Education is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and is approved for teacher preparation by the State Department of Education of Ohio.

The College of Education shares the mission of Ohio University. Its special mission is to provide supportive and challenging experiences that foster the development of educational and human services professionals and the communities they serve. The college is a center for the development of knowledge and effective practices in education, human development, and organizational leadership. It promotes the efforts of participants to design and experiment with new practices, evaluate their impact, and share the results. Thus, programs evolve and are frequently improved to comply with changing standards established by the State of Ohio and accrediting agencies.

Selective Admission and Retention

The college has a selective admission and retention process that applies to all students who intend to complete the teacher preparation program through Ohio University. Decisions regarding the retention of teacher education students in licensure programs will be made through a continual quarterly evaluation of progress in coursework, clinical experiences, and field-based experiences. Evaluation criteria will be directly related to the specific knowledge, skill, attitude, and value objectives associated with each experience. There are three selection phases in this process, two of which are described below. The third phase is detailed under " Student Teaching."

Graduation Requirements

Each student must earn at least 192 quarter hours and successfully completed a program to receive a degree from the College of Education. Students completing two degrees must complete a minimum of 208 hours. No more than 20 hours of courses may be taken through the Pass/Fail option. No more than 6 hours of HSC, HSM, HSW, or PED classes may count in the total hours required for graduation. Additionally, no more than 8 hours of developmental coursework may be used toward the completion of a degree. Although courses can apply to more than one requirement, the hours earned for such classes may only count once in the total. Students are required to have an accumulative g.p.a. of 2.75, and to have a 2.75 or higher in the field(s) for which licensure is sought.

Teaching Licenses

If you plan to teach in Ohio, you will apply for a teaching license one month before completing the required classes. Before you will be licensed to teach, passing scores for the Praxis II exam must be reported to Student Services in the College of Education. You also need a 2.75 overall g.p.a. and a 2.75 g.p.a in each field for which licensure is sought. Applications may be obtained from Student Services, McCracken Hall 124, or your regional campus student services office. The license is issued by the State Department of Education and qualifies you to teach the subjects indicated on the license.

To be recommended by Ohio University for licensure, you must have a level of preparation in your major area of specialization that corresponds with the outline on the preceding and following pages, even though these requirements in many instances exceed those shown in the state licensure regulations.

Completion of requirements for graduation and of the professional courses required for licensure does not ensure that you will be recommended for licensure. Instructors in various courses, especially in courses in education and student teaching, will evaluate your fitness for the teaching profession in ways other than observation of academic performance in the classroom. Limitations that might impair your effectiveness as a teacher in the public schools will be made a part of your record. When you apply for a license, this record will be examined and your fitness for teaching given further consideration.

All students applying for a teaching license must undergo a background check by the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation (BCI). The State Department of Education will not issue a new license until it receives a copy of the background check from the BCI. This requirement includes:

  1. Those applying for their first license

  2. Those who have a license but are applying for an additional license

    If you are applying for an endorsement, you will not need to undergo a background check.

    If you are not planning to teach in Ohio, familiarize yourself with the requirements specified by the state in which you expect to teach.

    Once you are issued a two-year provisional license, you are required to complete the Entry Year Program and Performance Based Assessment (PRAXIS III) in order to be eligible for a five-year professional license.

    Out-of-State Licensure and Reciprocity

    Many states have licensure guidelines that allow all NCATE-accredited colleges to recommend students for licensure. If you need to obtain licensure outside Ohio, contact the Department of Education in the appropriate state to obtain an application and learn if additional tests or courses are required. Your out-of-state application should be sent to Student Services, McCracken Hall.

    Partnerships

    In conjunction with public schools in southeastern Ohio, the College of Education has developed several partnerships. Partnership programs provide increased field experience opportunities for preservice teachers to learn with, and from, experienced teachers. Partnership schools support and encourage ongoing professional development for faculty and administrators. Current partnerships for Early Childhood Education include: Chauncey Literacy partnership, East R.E.A.D. Partnership, and The Plains Partnership. For Middle Childhood, Adolescent to Young Adult, and Multi-Age majors, the Creating Active and Reflective Educators (C.A.R.E.) partnership is offered.

    Placement

    The Office of Career Services, located in Lindley Hall, offers assistance to undergraduate students seeking educational positions. Information about available teaching and administrative positions in the public schools, as well as openings in education, student personnel, counselor education, and physical education departments of colleges and universities of most states and many foreign countries, is disseminated through the office.

    Education Abroad

    For information about education abroad opportunities, refer to "Office of Education Abroad" in the "University-Wide Academic Opportunities" section.

    Department of Counseling and Higher Education

    The Department of Counseling and Higher Education offers only graduate programs. However, some undergraduate courses are available in career counseling and human relations. For more information about graduate programs, contact Student Services, McCracken Hall 124, telephone 740-593-4400.

    Required General Education Courses (45 hours)

    In addition to the following program requirements, you also must complete Ohio University's General Education Requirements. Consult with your advisor to plan a course of study that will meet both sets of requirements.

    You must meet departmental prerequisites for all classes if you are seeking licensure. For example, you must take and pass PSY 101 with a minimum grade of C before taking any 200 level education course.

    If the courses in each field do not add up to a total of 45 hours, you must elect sufficient hours in one or a combination of the following areas to bring the total hours in general education courses to 45 hours.

    If your major is the same as one of the areas below, 10 hours of the major may be counted toward the corresponding general education field as well as the major. For example, if your major is integrated language arts, 10 hours of English may count toward the 45-hour total of general education courses and toward Field 4, below, which is English and/or Foreign Language.

    No more than six hours of PED activity courses may be counted toward the degree except for majors in physical eduation, and none may count toward general education.

    Science and Mathematics

    You are required to complete at least one course in science and one course in mathematics. Appropriate science courses are astronomy, chemistry, physics, plant biology, biological science, physical science, geological sciences, and PSY 226, 312, and 314. Any course in the Department of Mathematics, except 101, 102, or 320L, is acceptable for the mathematics requirement. Also, all Tier I quantitative skills courses count toward the mathematics requirement. Computer science courses do not satisfy this requirement.

    Interdisciplinary Arts and/or Philosophy

    You are required to complete at least two courses in this area. The two courses need not be in one field. Possibilities include any courses in the Department of Philosophy (except PHIL 120) or School of Interdisciplinary Arts; HUM 107, 108, 109, 307, 308, and 309; theater history courses; Art History; Art except for ART 360, 461, 461L, 462; School of Music courses except for music education courses, music therapy courses, and the one- or two-hour participation courses.

    Social Sciences

    You are required to complete at least two courses in social sciences. The two courses need not be in the same field. PSY 101, which is required, is included as one of the social sciences courses. Other possibilities include any course in anthropology, economics, history, political science, sociology, social work, geography, and psychology, except PSY 120, 226, 275, 312, and 314.

    English and Speech

    You are required to complete at least three courses in English and speech. Freshman and junior English composition are required courses taken to satisfy the University English composition requirement (see General Education Requirements section) and will be used toward completion of these hours.

    Honors Tutorial Program in Adolescent-Young Adult Education

    If you are admitted to the Honors Tutorial College in an academic major, you may become licensed in adolescent-young adult education by combining two sets of tutorial experiences: one in the academic area and one in adolescent-young adult education. By completing both tutorial programs in addition to other licensure requirements, you will receive adolescent-young adult teaching licensure and a bachelor's degree from the Honors Tutorial College. For further information, contact Dr. Joan Safran, Coordinator, Honors Tutorial Program in Secondary Education.

    Life Science
    Major code BS6314

    Regardless of the college of the university from which you graduate, if you wish to be licensed through Ohio University to teach life science as the major field, you must complete the following program and earn passing scores on the Praxis II exams. The program prepares you for a two-year provisional license that qualifies you to teach life science in grades 7-12 inclusive.

Apply for student teaching by December 1st of the year in which you plan to student teach. For example, if you plan to student teach during any of the three quarters, of the 2005-2006 school year, apply by December 1, 2004. For further information contact Student Services, McCracken 124.

    Required General Education Courses (45 hours)

    In addition to the following program requirements, you also must complete Ohio University's General Education Requirements. Consult with your advisor to plan a course of study that will meet both sets of requirements.

    You must meet departmental prerequisites for all classes if you are seeking licensure. For example, you must take and pass PSY 101 with a minimum grade of C before taking any 200 level education course.

    If the courses in each field do not add up to a total of 45 hours, you must elect sufficient hours in one or a combination of the following areas to bring the total hours in general education courses to 45 hours.

    If your major is the same os one of the area below, 10 hours of the major may be counted toward the corresponding general education field as well as the major. For example, if your major is integrated language arts, 10 hours of English may count toward the 45-hour total of general education courses and toward Field 4, below, which is English and/or Foreign Languauge.

    No more than six hours of PED activity courses may be counted toward the degree except for majors in physical education, and none may count toward general education.

    Science and Mathematics

    You are required to complete at least one course in science and one course in mathematics. Appropriate science courses are astronomy, chemistry, physics, plant biology, biological science, physical science, geological sciences, and PSY 226, 312, and 314. Any course in the Department of Mathematics, except 101, 102, or 320L, is acceptable for the mathematics requirement. Also, all Tier I quantitative skills courses count toward the mathematics requirement. Computer science courses do not satisfy the requirement.

    Interdisciplinary Arts and/or Philosophy

    You are required to complete at least two courses in this area. The two courses need not be in one field.

    Special Education-Intervention Specialist Programs K-12

    To receive a B.S.Ed. in Special Education and licensure as an Intervention Specialist, you must complete one of the professional preparation programs for teaching students with special needs and receive passing scores on the Praxis II exams. Students should also consult the Special Education program sheets (available on the Web) and meet with their advisor about scheduling as early as possible.

    Students who seek admission into Special Education courses will be subject to additional selective admission criteria beyond the College of Education's Selective Admission and Retention requirements. Enrollment in these programs is limited to promote quality instruction, appropriate field placement, and effective advising. The selective admission process into Special Education includes application for admission to Professional Education, review of your academic record, and your autobiography. Admission applications are available from the Student Services Office, McCracken Hall 124. Applications should be submitted for review the third quarter of your freshman year, or soon thereafter. The application deadline is April 15, to allow for review of applications prior to Fall Quarter pre-registration.

    Specific information about programs in hearing and speech is included under the College of Health and Human Services section of this catalog.
