Medaille College is committed to fostering reflective practitioners with demonstrated proficiency in academic content, pedagogy, learning theory, and student development through its B.S.Ed. in Education programs. As a teacher, you’ll have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children. Education majors begin observing teachers and students in the classroom their very first year. Coursework and knowledge later come together when students begin student teaching. At the end of the program, graduates are prepared for rewarding careers helping to educate our future generations.

The undergraduate programs within the School of Education include:

  • Adolescent Education Biology 7-12 & Students with Disabilities
  • Adolescent Education English 7-12 & Students with Disabilities
  • Adolescent Education Mathematics 7-12 & Students with Disabilities
  • Adolescent Education Social Studies 7-12 & Students with Disabilities
  • Early Childhood/Childhood (B-6) Biology Concentration
  • Early Childhood/Childhood (B-6) English Concentration
  • Early Childhood/Childhood (B-6) Math Concentration
  • Early Childhood/Childhood (B-6) Social Studies Concentration
  • Early Childhood/Childhood (B-6) Rochester

To meet the needs of working adults, we offer the bachelor of science in education in a year-round, evening format at our Rochester Campus. This format allows you to maintain your daytime responsibilities while studying to become a teacher. During the last semester of your program, you will complete student teaching, which is a full-time, daytime commitment. (NOTE: Students will also attend a one-day seminar at the Amherst Campus at some point during their program).

Medaille College has a long-standing reputation in Western New York for producing some of the area's most effective teachers. Many area school boards prioritize Medaille graduates when looking through resumes. The reason? A Medaille graduate is ready to teach the very first day on the job

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
