Whether you are interested in early childhood preK-4 or combining that degree with special education preK-8, Gannon University’s education program will provide you with great practical experiences. Beyond the classroom, all education majors at Gannon have the opportunity to put theory into practice through one ten-week practicum and four three-week practicums in a variety of local schools and educational settings. In addition, several practical experiences are embedded in coursework throughout the four-year program. The planned sequence of field experiences integrates academic and professional content with actual practice in classrooms. These diverse practicums take place in public, parochial and private schools in rural, suburban and urban settings across multiple grade levels. All practicum placements are arranged by the University and supervised by University staff who provide additional guidance and feedback to our pre-service teachers.
The Liberal Studies Core Curriculum is one reflection of Gannon University's commitment to
its Catholic identity. The Core's design offers students a defined, integrated, shared
experience as the foundation for their undergraduate program.
