Department of Education

Professor Barbara Marinak explains what motivates children to read in this installment of our video series Mount Minutes.

The Department of Education is committed to the liberal arts Veritas curriculum as the foundation for the academic and intellectual development of teacher candidates. The Veritas curriculum is designed to help students acquire essential skills of critical thinking and self-expression, gain and integrate knowledge in and across various disciplines, acquire understanding of other cultures and time periods, develop awareness of various facets of moral and ethical problems as well as competencies in intercultural communication for an increasingly complex technological and cultural world. The ultimate goal is for students to achieve a high degree of personal fulfillment.

In addition to the Veritas curriculum, prospective teachers in the Department of Education engage in professional coursework grounded in state of the art research on learning theories, pedagogical methods, and culturally responsive teaching.
