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.

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. 

TEACHER LICENSURE

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 FOR EDUCATORS

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.

SCHOOL SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM
