Undergraduate Programs

Were you one of those students who lived for “specials” — classes in music, art or a foreign language?

Foster creativity in the next generation of pre-K through high school students and earn a Multi-Age Education degree from The University of Toledo. UToledo’s accredited Multi-Age program prepares students to be artists, creative thinkers, and art, music and foreign language teachers.

You take a majority of your classes in the department of your specialty area during your first two years. In your final two years, learn educational theory and real-world classroom skills as you student teach in local classrooms.

Top Reasons to Study Multi-age education at UToledo

  1. Extensive student teaching experience.
    UToledo education undergraduates spend four semesters in local rural, suburban and urban schools. This is twice as much time as most colleges require. This field experience, coupled with extensive coursework in classroom management and methods, makes our students more effective teachers. It also makes them attractive to future employers.
  2. Top-notch art and music programs.
    Art and music education majors spend most of their first two years taking courses in the art and music departments.
  3. Outstanding foreign language resources.
    UToledo’s Foreign Language Learning Center is a media-driven learning lab. Listen to digital audio, read foreign-language comic books and watch live and pre-recorded Dish Network international programming.
  4. Learn from the best.
    UToledo undergraduates benefit from resources and high-caliber faculty who are attracted by the University’s master's, education specialist and PhD programs.
  5. Accreditation.
    The Judith Herb College of Education is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation. The art education, music education and foreign language licensure programs are nationally accredited.
  6. Add a minor in World Cultures.
    This minor in the Department of World Languages and Cultures in the College of Arts and Letters can enhance any program of study. We live in an increasingly diverse country and can benefit personally and professionally from knowing more about other cultures. The program explores intercultural communication, traditions, how people conduct business and more.
