Middle Childhood Education, MEd


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study


Program Description:

Upon successful completion of the program and passing the appropriate state mandated exams, candidates are eligible to apply for an Ohio Resident Educator four-year middle childhood license(s) in the concentration areas that apply to the candidate’s preparation: Language Arts and Reading (4-9), Mathematics (4-9), Science (4-9), Social Studies (4-9). Candidates will also be licensed to teach reading, grades 4-9, with the successful completion of the program.

Middle Childhood teachers will be licensed to teach two of the following subject (content) areas: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.  This full-time program of study requires a Monday through Friday commitment.  Students from Wright State University’s Bachelor of Education program in Middle Childhood Education and/or others with a bachelor’s degree, who meet the two content area requirements and any other prerequisites of Wright State’s educator preparation program may be admitted to this program.  This graduate program will begin as a cohort in the summer semester.  Prerequisite content requirements are described on the college’s Web (http://education-human-services.wright.edu).

Candidates will serve as interns in school settings throughout an academic school year.  Therefore, this program operates on a different calendar than the university, and candidates will be required to start prior to the beginning of the university’s academic term.  Additionally, the state of Ohio will require a criminal background check as a part of the licensure application.

Admissions Requirements:

In addition to meeting requirements for admission established by the Graduate School, applicants must meet content requirements and pass two appropriate state mandated content examinations: Middle School English Language Arts, Middle School Mathematics, Middle School Science, Middle School Social Studies.  Contact the college’s Office of Student Services to learn more about the exams.  Candidates are required to present an original score report to the College of Education and Human Services for verification and notification to the Graduate School.  Do not send score reports to the Graduate School.

Other admission criteria includes: submission of a program application and submission of a field experience application.  The program application is a separate application from the Graduate School application.  The accrediting agency for teacher education requires a separate consideration of every candidate seeking to be a teacher.

The program application includes a self-assessment, content verification, references, and a checklist regarding conviction of certain crimes (which may prevent the candidate from being licensed as a teacher by the state of Ohio). The faculty reserves the right to conduct an admission interview. Please visit with a Teacher Licensure Advisor to learn the details of the admissions process to the Middle Childhood Education program.

Licensure Only Candidates - Initial License and Additional License

A candidate who chooses to complete licensure requirements at the graduate level, but does not choose to pursue a graduate degree, may be admitted as a licensure-only candidate by permission of the department and the program.  The teacher licensure-only candidate is required to complete the Ohio Department of Education prescribed exams for their intended area(s) of licensure.

Licensure only candidates in Middle Childhood Education are typically currently licensed teachers who already hold a Master’s degree and only seek an additional license in Middle Childhood Education.

A candidate who is not currently licensed, but chooses to be a licensure-only candidate is required to complete the same admission criteria as a Master’s candidate.
