Department of Education
The mission of the Education Department at Elizabethtown College is to provide its students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become thoughtful and responsible teachers who, informed by scholarship and research, are prepared to meet the social, intellectual, and professional challenges of today’s culturally diverse and inclusive pre-K to 12 classrooms. Our department's signature attribute of social justice is weaved into the curriculum--we focus on advocacy for equity, civic engagement, global citizenship and international/comparative perspectives.
Elizabethtown College, through its Department of Education, offers several programs leading to a bachelor’s degree and Pennsylvania Instructional I Teaching certification. Together, the Department and College act as an agent of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the teacher certification process for students who meet all appropriate standards.
