Bachelor of Science in Middle Childhood Education
The Department of Teacher Education provides a wide range of programs to support the interests of prospective and practicing P-12 teachers at the undergraduate level. The department gives the opportunity for students admitted to professional education to pursue undergraduate courses leading to teacher licensure in the state of Ohio.
Middle Childhood Education (MCE) prepares students for licensure to teach grades 4 through 9 in elementary school upper primary grades, middle school, junior high school, or high schools (9th grade only). All Middle Childhood Education licensure programs require students to choose two subject content specializations. These will be the two subjects graduates are licensed to teach. Four subject content specializations include:
Language Arts | Mathematics | Science | Social Studies
Upon completing the program and achieving passing scores on the Ohio Assessments for Educators, graduates are eligible for a two-year provisional teaching license for grades 4-9 in those areas.
