For people who have a passion for learning, and would enjoy helping those in their formative educational years, the teaching profession is an excellent career path. Effective teachers look for the potential in all learners and find success in helping students succeed.
Walsh's education program is designed to nurture teacher candidates and empower them to serve their future students both in and out of the classroom. In addition, current educators can enhance their teaching credentials by pursuing an education endorsement or master's degree in education from Walsh.
P-5 Elementary License- Now Available for Incoming Education Majors
All entering first-year Walsh University undergraduate students will be able to enroll in the new Elementary P-5 grade band licensure program to meet the needs of elementary school positions for Ohio and throughout the United States. Other states already offer P-5 programs; Ohio has now identified the need for this in the job market. Walsh University is one of the first in Ohio to offer this program.
The current Early Childhood Education (ECE P-3) program will no longer be available for incoming students.
Education Early Credentialing Program for Seniors
With recent reductions in undergraduate licensure credit requirements, qualified seniors will be able to begin taking graduate coursework the summer prior to their senior year and throughout their senior year to strengthen employability options. These additional courses will help them complete their graduation requirements and give them a head start to completion of graduate endorsement programs.
Walsh University endorsements include: Early Childhood 4-5; TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages), Technology/Computer, Reading Endorsement, and Teacher Leadership.
Endorsement courses are accelerated and delivered online, providing flexible scheduling for seniors completing their last year of courses and student teaching. They are offered in eight-week sessions which will allow seniors to take 1-2 courses each term of their fall and spring semesters.
Multiple school districts request new teachers to have coursework towards or completion of endorsements for hiring.
Our graduates are prepared to teach Pre-K through Grade 12 age groups. Walsh students can choose from a variety of specialization options such as Early Childhood Education, Adolescent to Young Adult Integrated Language Arts and Middle Childhood Education (with licensures available in Math, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies). Teachers can work in public, private and parochial educational systems.
We also offer K-12 licensure programs for Physical Educators and Intervention Specialists.
