Workforce Education and Development (WF ED) - Archive

PROFESSOR RICHARD A. WALTER, in charge

This major leads to the B.S. degree and may also lead to certification as a career and technical education teacher, and/or a coordinator of cooperative education, provided other requirements of the Pennsylvania Department of Education are met. The Industrial Training option does not lead to teacher certification.

To be certified by the Pennsylvania Department of Education as a career and technical education teacher, a person must have sufficient employment experience beyond the learning period to establish competency in the occupation to be taught. Further interpretation of this requirement may be secured by contacting the Department of Adult Education, Instructional Systems, and Workforce Education and Development. (See also Teacher Education Programs.)

For the B.S. degree in Workforce Education and Development, a minimum of 127 credits is required.
