Mount Union has given me the chance to participate in organizations, help the Alliance community and expand knowledge in my career path.
The preparation of teachers in the areas of foreign language (French, German, Japanese, and Spanish), music, physical education, health, and visual arts is accomplished by offering candidates essential elements of the early and middle childhood and adolescence to young adult programs. Methods courses and field experiences are selected to develop specific skills and competencies necessary for success with candidates across this expanse of age and grade levels. The professional and pedagogical studies' component of the licensure area is based on NAEYC, NMSA, and NASSP models and incorporates a compendium of standards and benchmarks for K-12 education. Content specific methods courses are also a feature of this licensure area.
