At Quinnipiac, we offer a variety of programs to prepare you for a range of jobs in the field of education. People with degrees in education not only work in schools; they work in corporations as directors of training, in healthcare as client educators, in law organizations as advocates for kids with special needs, in universities as course designers and in many other settings. In addition to their day jobs, these individuals are often athletic coaches, career advisors and community volunteers. Wherever engaging and effective learning is needed, you can be sure to find graduates from the School of Education.
Our undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs fully immerse you in the art and science of teaching and learning. Depending on your personal goals, you’ll learn how to communicate effectively, structure engaging lessons and learning resources, manage a classroom or school and leverage educational technology. Most importantly, you’ll develop the skills to ensure that learners of all levels and cultural backgrounds have every opportunity to succeed.
Our approach integrates modern theories of teaching and learning with the practical application of those theories. Classes are taught by accomplished faculty members with deep educational and industry experience. Small class sizes afford the opportunity for personal guidance and feedback for each student. Prospective classroom teachers will complete extensive fieldwork, which will give you both hands-on experience and the benefit of reduced tuition.
