School of Education undergraduate and graduate degrees

As you prepare to teach students, we want you to know you will have the training and skills you need so that they, and you, succeed.

Why choose Akron?

We offer multiple options for undergraduate teacher licensure programs and two master’s level programs for K-12 administration and curriculum instruction.

Today’s K-12 public school classrooms reflect our increasingly diverse society — and that offers many opportunities for enriching experiences for students and their teachers, however the classrooms of the 21st century also present challenges.

Our program will ensure your preparedness to teach students from all backgrounds, and being in the field will give you real-time, hands-on experiences so that you understand what happens in a classroom long before you graduate and begin your teaching career.
