Immersion in the field is a hallmark of our program. You won’t spend just one semester student teaching – you’ll spend countless hours working with youngsters in a variety of settings. In fact, during your first year on campus, we’ll place you in a local classroom to observe and work with students.

The programme

As an Early And Middle Childhood Education student at Ohio Northern University, you can choose to major in either early childhood age 3-grade 3 or middle childhood grades 4-9. With additional coursework, early childhood majors can add grades 4-5 to their Ohio teaching licenses, while middle childhood majors can add grades 4-6 non-concentration areas to their Ohio teaching license. With both majors, you’ll take liberal arts courses in English, mathematics, history, art, music and science, as well as courses in child development, exceptional learners, technology, curriculum, classroom strategies, methods of teaching and more.


Our education program is fully accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
