The purposes of the teacher education programs are to give students a thorough background in educational philosophy and theoretical concepts of instruction, and to provide an opportunity for student teaching and other field experiences.
Other departments work cooperatively with the education department in the preparation of teachers in secondary education, K-12 education, and music education. All education programs are competency-based and have received accreditation from the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Note that course requirements for the Education minor are subject to change reflecting Pennsylvania State Department of Education regulations and accreditation requirements. The liberal arts are central to the College's teacher education programs.
