Career-Tech Education Program

Businesses, industries, secondary schools, community colleges and technical colleges around the world are searching for individuals with the necessary skills to train and teach their employees and students. This is exactly what students majoring in career and technical education are prepared to do! If you cannot decide between business and education, Career-Tech Education (CTE) might be the degree for you. Students are ready for careers as teachers, administrators, or educational specialists in a variety of employment settings.

Career-Tech Teacher Education focuses on teacher preparation in traditional programming as well as non-traditional programs that rely primarily on practitioners who exit industry to enter teaching positions.  The CTE program offers initial licensure/teacher preparation as well as professional development for teachers through degree programming, in-service training and offering professional licensure add-ons and endorsements.  The CTE program provides leadership for Ohio Career-Technical Teacher Education by preparing teaching professionals to instruct/prepare students for successful careers in Ohio.

 Master of Education in Career-Tech Education

The Master’s Degree Program is designed for students interested in extending their proficiency in teaching, adding endorsements to their licenses, or pursuing an administrative license as a Vocational Director.

Generally, the course of study will include three areas within the required 30 semester hours. The three areas include:

(1) basic (core) requirements (9 hours),
(2) major and/or license requirements (18 hours), and
