Education


About

The Department of Education offers a broad curriculum that actively involves students in classroom demonstrations and diverse field experiences, connecting educational theory with best practice. Active learning and complete cognitive and social participation are required of all participants, and students have multiple opportunities for internships and other field work.

There are two options that lead to graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from Washington & Jefferson College:

  • Option one is graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child Development and Education (CDE) and successful completion of teacher certification requirements leading to certification in early childhood grades Prek-4.
  • Option two is graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child Development and Education (CDE) without certification. Through a specifically designed, individualized capstone experience, the Department of Education offers an alternative program that can lead to certification after graduating from W&J.

For more information about education and teacher certification standards in Pennsylvania, see the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the PDE Standards Aligned System websites. Additional W&J course information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
