Description

The Bachelor of Science in Education degree in Middle Childhood Education prepares students for teacher licensure in selected subject areas, plus reading, for grades four to nine. In addition to content coursework and a substantial amount of field experiences, the Middle Childhood Education major includes intensive pedagogy courses that prepare students to understand the unique social, physical, cognitive and emotional needs of the young adolescent; these courses are taken as a cohort. Student teaching occurs during the final semester of the program.

While it is possible to complete the degree program in four years by taking 16-18 credit hours each semester, it is more probable that 4.5 years will be needed for certain combinations of concentrations.

Students choose two concentrations from the following:

  • The Language Arts concentration includes courses in communication, grammar, literature, reading and writing.
  • The Mathematics concentration includes courses in algebra, trigonometry, calculus, geometry and statistics.
  • The Science concentration includes diverse courses in chemistry, biology, geology and physics.
  • The Social Studies concentration includes diverse courses in economics, history, political science, geography and anthropology.

Fully Offered At:

  • Geauga Campus
  • Kent Campus
  • Stark Campus

Accreditation

Admission Requirements

Admission to the college does not guarantee admission to a major and/or admission to professional coursework for a selective admission program. To be admitted directly into a teacher education program, it is required that new freshmen have a 2.750 high school GPA. Students who do not meet the GPA requirements of their intended major may enroll into EHHS General until which time they have established a Kent State GPA of 2.750.

The College of Education, Health and Human Services considers a student to have established a Kent State University GPA after the student has successfully completed a minimum of 12 Kent State University credit hours. Undergraduate students who have not completed a minimum of 12 Kent State University credit hours will be evaluated for admission into programs, advanced study and professional phase based on their high school GPA for new freshmen or transfer GPA for transfer students. Once a student has successfully completed a minimum of 12 Kent State University credit hours, only the student’s Kent State overall GPA will be considered for admission into a program, advanced study and professional phase.

For more information on admissions, visit the admission website.

English Language Proficiency Requirements for International Students: All international students must provide proof of English language proficiency (unless they meet specific exceptions) by earning a minimum 525 TOEFL score (71 on the Internet-based version), minimum 75 MELAB score, minimum 6.0 IELTS score or minimum 48 PTE Academic score, or by completing the ELS level 112 Intensive Program. For more information on international admission, visit the Office of Global Education’s admission website.

Program Learning Outcomes

Graduates of the program will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate the knowledge, skills and disposition needed to work collaboratively with diverse others.
  2. Demonstrate content knowledge in two licensure specialization areas.
  3. Demonstrate in-depth instructional and planning skills to effectively meet the needs of all their students.
