Student Success



Through real classrooms, diverse practicums and experienced research-driven faculty, Bloomsburg University's College of Education pairs a strong teaching foundation with quality field experiences to broaden your understanding of effective classroom instruction and establish a platform for putting theory and research into practice.

Featuring the Department of Teaching and Learning and Department of Exceptionality Programs, we offer programs designed to achieve your career goals either as a teacher, administrator, counselor, sign language/English interpreter, or higher education administrator. Most of our teacher education programs have a 96 to 100 percent employment rate.



Our education programs:

  • are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation
  • lead to teacher certification approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Education
  • are taught by faculty — not graduate assistants — with extensive experience in PK-12 schools as teachers, supervisors, principals, curriculum directors, and superintendents
  • include specialized training in non-academic barriers (social, emotional and mental health, suicide prevention) through the McDowell Institute for Teacher Excellence
  • allow for dual certification, English as a Second Language (ESL) Certificate and STEM Endorsement for enhanced marketability
  • include field experiences beginning in the first year culminating with a 16-week supervised student teaching experience
  • both the Child Life Minor and the Child Life Certificate programs meet the Association of Child Life Professionals curriculum standards and eligibility requirements necessary to obtain the Certified Child Life Specialist credential
