Department of Education
Robert Morris University’s education programs develop candidates who support the intellectual, social and personal development of all students. We prepare undergraduate and graduate candidates to be sensitive educators and instructional leaders who strive to increase student learning through the integration of technology, communication skills, and the application of theory into practice to improve the teaching profession.
Students follow the Teacher Education Progress Process for undergraduates, post-baccalaureate students, and transfer students to help them on their path to certification.

Upon completion of either an undergraduate degree program or a post-baccalaureate teacher certification program, the successful teacher candidate applies to the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) for teacher certification in one of the following areas: Biology; Business, Computer and Information Technology; English; Early Childhood Education; Early Childhood/Special Education; Mathematics; Middle Level; or Social Studies.
The Department of Education also offers several graduate degrees and certifications, including a doctoral degree.
The primary objective of graduate study in the education department is to provide effective, advanced studies in areas relating to the learning environment, the improvement of instruction through effective leadership and management, and professional development.
Education programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). The accreditation process establishes rigorous standards for educator preparation programs and holds accredited institutions accountable for providing continuous evidence of meeting these standards. Faculty follow the Scholar -Practitioner Model, making connections between scholarship and practice in PreK-12 educational and learning settings.
