School of Education Home Page

Medaille College believes life-long learning forms the foundation for teaching excellence and has engrained that philosophy into each facet of our Bachelor of Science in Education program.

Be ready. As a Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) certified program, Medaille focuses on literacy, technology and cultural sensitivity to prepare teachers for the 21st century classroom. Medaille’s small class sizes, personal attention and stimulating coursework create a learning environment that mirrors the experiences our students will have in real-world classrooms.

Be motivated. At our state-of-the-art Rochester Campus, Medaille’s program prepares you to receive a bachelor’s degree in elementary education with certification in both Early Childhood (Birth-2) and Childhood (1-6). Discover how exposure to experienced, inspiring educators with different teaching styles and methods can motivate you to succeed in this rewarding career.

Be successful. We have designed our 54 credit program for students who have approximately two years of college credit. Our advisors work with each student to assess their previous college coursework and develop a program tailored to their experiences. Those needing additional coursework have access to both online and on-campus courses offered by Medaille. Students who complete 12 credits each semester remain eligible for full-time financial aid.

Be flexible. Medaille’s manageable course schedule consists of Tuesday and Thursday classes from 6 to 10 p.m. in seven week blocks of two classes at a time. (A one day seminar will take place on the Buffalo Campus.) Students participate in field work in area schools early in the program and complete a full-time (Monday-Friday, days), 14-week student teaching assignment during the last semester.
