Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.Ed.)
The Mansfield campus offers a Bachelor's Degree with licensure in early (grades PK-3) and middle (grades 4-9) childhood education. Admission into the licensure program is selective and requires a minimum 2.75 grade point average. At the time of application, it is expected that students have completed the general education pre-major courses and, for those in the middle childhood program, the coursework in two areas of concentration.
A program designed for licensed teachers who want to expand their areas of licensure or knowledge of teaching. It can be tailored to meet students' needs, interests, and aspirations. Areas of concentration include but are not limited to Children's Literature & Literacy, Multicultural Education & Social Studies, Early Childhood, and Math, Science, & Technology.
Education Specialist (Ed.S.) program
The Education Specialist degree (Ed.S.) provides the opportunity for educators with a Master’s degree to further their professional development with a strong grounding in and application of diverse theory and research. The program offers a set of experiences and courses for specialists in PreK-Grade12 instructional leadership positions, such as teacher/team leaders, mentor teachers, department chairs, curriculum developers, or other school- and district-based roles. Students may be able to take some courses on the Mansfield campus, but the program originates from the Columbus campus Department of Teaching and Learning.
