A Hartwick education major prepares you for certification in certification in Childhood (1st – 6th grade), Middle Childhood (5th – 9th grade), and Adolescence Education (7th – 12th grade) in 24 teacher certification content areas.
What’s more, Hatwick’s selective program leads to a dual certification program in Special Education/Childhood Education, Special Education/Adolescence Education, Students with Disabilities Generalist (7-12), Music Education (K-12), and Visual Arts (K-12).
There are many effective ways of learning. At Hartwick, these include internships, study abroad, the education work-study program, alternative/multicultural/special education minipracticum, field experience, and directed studies with professors. Students design, develop, and implement an educational program that is consistent with their interests and preparation, and long-term professional goals.
