Middle Childhood Education

A degree in Middle Childhood Education (MCE) from MVNU will more than adequately prepare you to feel comfortable and confident teaching grades 4 through 9 in your two chosen content concentrations.

  • Strong reputation — MVNU's School of Education and Professional Studies has long been known as a quality program because of the extensive hands-on field experience offered to students starting freshman year.
  • Learning abroad — You will have the opportunity to complete part of your student teaching internationally in South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia. You’ll get an in-depth look at what education looks like globally and be better prepared to be an excellent educator wherever you choose to begin your career.
  • Quality faculty — All professors in this program have professional experience in teaching and/or administration in public or private schools. This means you’ll be learning from people who have been where you’re going.

Check out the catalog for a complete list of the requirements, courses, and objectives for the Middle Childhood Education program!

Your main workspaces in this program will be the classrooms you get to teach and assist in, in your licensure area, as early as your first or second semester.

There are opportunities to complete part of your student teaching semester internationally in Costa Rica, China, Central America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia as well as New York City, Boston, and Los Angeles.  You’ll get an in-depth look at what education looks like globally and be better prepared to be an excellent educator wherever you choose to begin your career.

All MVNU students are also invited to participate in our many other service and learning trips.

The TEACH grant is available for students who plan to teach in high-need areas after graduation.

MVNU also has many endowed scholarships available for students of a wide variety of backgrounds and majors.

MVNU has a strong reputation for putting out qualified, savvy, and caring Education graduates. Employers know that we exceed the number of field hours required for licensure by the state of Ohio — because of that reputation, our grads are always in high demand. The vast majority of them secure jobs not long after, and sometimes even prior to, graduation.

A Middle Childhood Education degree from MVNU will prepare you to teach grades 4–9 in your two content areas. An endorsement is also available that will enable you to teach grades 4–6 in a self-contained classroom.

  • Liberty Middle School, Newark, OH
  • Orion Academy, Cincinnati, OH
  • Bellefontaine Intermediate, Bellefontaine, OH
