A major in Middle Level Education prepares students for challenging and rewarding careers teaching children in grades 4-8. Students in this major will have substantive content courses in one or two areas and will be eligible for teaching in those content areas in the 4th through 8th grades.
How would you describe your experience as an education major at Chestnut Hill College?
I would describe my experience as an education major at Chestnut Hill College as an extremely rewarding experience. Throughout my time at Chestnut Hill, I have been able to interact with inspiring professors who not only teach me important concepts, but also about myself.
Why did you choose Chestnut Hill College?
I chose Chestnut Hill College because I wanted a more intimate education experience and because they were one of only a few schools that offered a Middle School Education Major.
Is there any advice you can give to an incoming CHC student who would like to pursue education as their major?
I would advise the incoming CHC students to keep on top of their PAPA and PRAXIS tests. Even though the teachers are there whenever you need them, they cannot hold your hand every step of the way. I would also tell the incoming students to get involved on campus and get to know your professors outside of the classroom. The professors at CHC have much more to offer than fulfilling curriculum requirements. Through my interaction with my teachers I have become a more confident and empathetic, as well as intelligent, person.
