Undergraduate Education

Dynamic, Inspirational and Forward-Thinking

Educators shape lives. Le Moyne shapes educators. With classes led by outstanding, experienced educators, an abundance of opportunities to gain hands-on experience in urban, rural and suburban classrooms, and a deep commitment to the Jesuit ideal of service, Le Moyne’s program in education is widely recognized as one of the best in the Northeast. Educators trained at Le Moyne are known for their tremendous skill and professionalism, of course. But more importantly, they are widely recognized for their desire to serve their schools and, by extension, their communities. They put tremendous thought and care not just into what they are doing, but why, and that distinction makes them among the most sought-after educators, not only locally, but nationally.


Undergraduate Education Courses and Requirements

The Department of Education collaborates with several arts and sciences departments at Le Moyne to prepare teachers who will address the needs of all children. Le Moyne teacher candidates address state learning standards through effective pedagogy and also attend to the social and political demands of public and private education in the world. The department administers New York state approved certification programs.

Le Moyne students interested in becoming a New York state certified teacher must select a major from the numerous Le Moyne disciplines complementary to the area of teacher certification. The major requirements are coordinated with the rigorous teacher preparation program. There are a number of state approved programs for initial certification offered.
