Bachelor of Science in Middle Childhood Education
Interested in teaching middle school? Middle school teaching is highly complex; teachers must be knowledgeable of content, young adolescent development, and dozens of additional social, critical thinking, and professional skills. Teachers bring diverse knowledge, strengths, and experience for their roles. They care deeply about young people and commonly enter teaching because of that care and concern.
The Bachelor of Science in Middle Childhood Education (MCED) can be completed entirely at the Kent State University Geauga Campus. Kent State Geauga's MCED program prepares teachers for grades 4 through 9 (ages 8 to 14). Students pursing an MCED degree select two concentration areas from the four available; Reading/Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and Mathematics.
Students interested in the MCED program at Kent State Geauga should contact Sarah Hull, Academic Advisor for Education Majors to discuss program curriculum and requirements.
Kent State University offers a variety of other education and teacher licensure programs; however, the MCED program is the only option offered entirely at Kent Geauga. If you are interested in other education majors, please make an appointment with Sarah Hull to discuss how Kent State Geauga can be a part of your academic career. Support is available for students who begin a degree program at the Geauga Campus with the intention of transitioning to the Kent Campus to complete the degree.
