Overview

Whether you choose one of the teacher preparatory education majors or the non-teaching educational studies major, you will learn to examine the many problems and issues of education in a critical, openminded spirit. You'll reflect on what it means to be an educated person, and explore diversity and equity issues in all your courses.

Key facts:

Teacher preparation majors are theory based rather than just technique driven. Primary, middle grades and secondary preparation students must be actively involved in their own learning, participating in a variety of interactive classes and seminars on campus and in P–12 classrooms. Most courses include labs and fieldwork, and the major includes a professional development component.

During their first course of this Education - Middle Grades 5-9 Cert at Transylvania University, students observe in the classrooms of local schools. Throughout their course work they participate in a variety of teaching experiences, including a four-week May term practicum that allows them to spend full days in a P–12 classroom. This hands-on approach is capped by a semester of student teaching completed in a public school during the senior year. Many of these opportunities are made possible by Transylvania’s location in downtown Lexington, which puts students in close proximity to both public and private elementary, middle and high schools.
