Areas of Study

Advanced Practice Minor

BW's K-12 MAEd programs provide students with concentrated expertise in a targeted area plus the breadth of knowledge in another area resulting in an advanced practice minor. Minors can be obtained in:

On Campus or Online

Students can choose the learning environment best suited to their situation. Classes are offered in both the traditional seated format and online.

BW's Master of Arts in Education online programs are ranked among the best in the country by U.S. News and World Report. Online programs feature the same relevant curriculum, supportive faculty and peer-to-peer discussions and collaborations as seated classes.

School Partnership Program

Many teachers enrolled in the MAEd programs are employed by school districts that participate in the BW School Partnership Program, qualifying them for significant tuition savings. 


Baldwin Wallace's teacher education program includes an undergraduate teacher education major which prepares students for teacher licensure; options for current teachers to renew or exchange their teacher licensure or opportunities for adults with a bachelor's degree to enter the teaching profession through licensure-only program or a licensure-plus-master's degree program


Professional development courses for K-12 teachers and administrators are graduate level, non-degree courses designed to enhance an educator's skills and knowledge base in just a few days while adding credit toward license renewal.


BW participates in a cooperative program for graduate students enrolled at the Case Western Reserve University Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences (MSASS) to provide courses leading to the School Social Work License.


BW's Leadership in Higher Education (LHE) program is a master's degree program for those seeking careers in college leadership. This distinctive program integrates student affairs and academic affairs to educate and develop transformative leaders prepared to address the challenges and opportunities of higher education's continually changing landscape.
