Why pursue an education degree and Ohio licensure at Kent State? We prepare pre-service teachers to nurture students for the 21st century, focusing not only on teaching the needed skills, but also on developing a keen awareness of how to do so in a global community.
In addition, graduate programs in literacy, educational technology and curriculum studies support in-service educators as they pursue leadership positions within the wider educational community through master’s and doctoral degrees. TLC faculty are passionate about fostering “next generation” educators who are kind, knowledgeable, and committed to their students and their well-being.

Kent State University education major Klair Heestand said the time she spent teaching refugee students in Akron in the spring was excellent preparation for when she enters her own classroom one day.
“It was very helpful, because we’re going to have students of varying abilities, and students for whom English is a second language, no matter where we teach,” Heestand said. “We don’t need anyone left behind because of a language barrier.”
