TU announces master’s concentrations

Teaching English, teaching art and teaching communication have been added as concentrations within Tiffin University’s master of education program, which is to be offered at the start of the summer semester.

The announcement is the university’s response to the need for qualified teachers for the College Credit Plus classes. Ohio requires high schools to work with community colleges and universities to create CCP classes. Classes are offered to high school students who are college ready. In order to teach college-level classes, teachers are to take 18 credit hours of graduate work to teach general education courses and have a master’s degree to teach a program course.

TU’s additional concentrations to the master of education program will help high school teachers earn the required credits to teach English, communications or art at the college level. The program has 12 credit hour cour classes and 18 credit hours of the discipline curriculum. If a teacher already has a master of education degree, but still needs to earn credits in the discipline curriculum, he/she is able to earn a concentration in English, communications or art.

To be eligible to enroll, students are to have a bachelor’s degree.
