Middle Childhood Degree Program
Middle Childhood Education (MCE) prepares students for a license to teach in grades 4 - 9 in upper elementary grades, middle school, and junior high school. All Middle Childhood Education licensure programs require students to choose two content area specializations.
Middle Childhood Education program majors:
Middle Childhood teachers are licensed to teach in two content areas (Language Arts, Mathematics, Science or Social Studies) in grades 4-9. The Generalist Endorsement will allow licensed Middle Childhood teachers to add one or two additional content areas for grades 4-6. State requirements require six semester hours for each content area, evidence of preparation in pedagogy in each of the additional content areas, and the appropriate required Ohio Assessments for Educators exam. Students currently need six semester hours with 3 of those hours being a content methods course to meet state requirements.
