This program is designed to provide an opportunity for fluent speakers of Chinese to learn pedagogical skills appropriate for PreK-12 classroom instruction and earn Ohio state teaching licensure.
The program is intended to make it possible for individuals to seek employment in PreK-12 settings teaching Chinese language and culture to U.S. students. Students enrolling in this program must be fluent in Chinese and may have prior teaching experience, often in settings outside the U.S. During their time in the program, students will become familiar with school culture and practice in a contemporary American setting, teach in a real school setting under the supervision of experienced educators, and ultimately be qualified to serve as a bridge between the cultures of China and the U.S.
The license is earned with an associated M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction.
