Gannon’s education program will prepare you to be an innovative and effective teacher. Our education curriculum focuses on teaching strategies, performance and professionalism. The core coursework emphasizes development, cognition, learning and assessment as well as content area knowledge and teaching pedagogy. The coursework also includes an environmental strand supported by our partnership with the Earth Action organization. This strand provides an opportunity for students to facilitate project-based learning in a middle school setting as part of a pre-student teaching experience. Additional learning experiences are provided through professional development opportunities made possible by community partnerships with 12 public school districts, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Erie’s parochial schools, area private schools, charter schools and the Dr. Gertrude A. Barber National Institute.
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.
