Education Department


Goals and Objectives

Comenius' quest continues to serve as inspiration to students and faculty at Moravian College: To seek and to find those methods of instruction which will best help our students to become knowledgeable, effective and humane teachers, teachers who will think carefully and clearly about how their beliefs, practices, and decisions will affect the lives of children.

Accordingly, the goal of the Education Department at Moravian College is to prepare teachers who: are scholars as well as teachers; are committed to the academic success of all of their students; are concerned with the personal as well as intellectual development of their students; use pedagogical strategies which are firmly grounded in empirical research; understand the value of self-reflection and continuing professional development.

The Program Overview lists specific certification areas, important features of the program, and criteria for admission.
