So you want to teach and you like working with computers? With a computer education degree, you can combine both disciplines. You'll be an educator who prepares students to be technologically literate.
As a computer education major (offered on campus), you'll have a strong computer background in web applications, information systems, programming and network systems. But, you'll also take classes in educational psychology and classroom management, preparing you to teach computers in grades K-12. Upon graduation, you'll receive your teacher certification and a K–12 educational technology endorsement. You will be more than ready to teach and take on the latest trends at all grade levels.
Benefits of studying computer education at DSU
Computer education classes are typically close-knit. On average, the student–faculty ratio is just 24:1. Faculty have real-life experience teaching, working with computers, and helping with state education projects. In their classrooms, you’ll receive real-world advice that will be immediately applicable.
You'll also have a year-long residency (a two-semester student teaching opportunity) in the public schools as your capstone experience. As a student teacher, you will teach at the elementary, middle or high school levels to give you a jump start on your teaching career. You’ll be ready to lead the class when it’s time.
At DSU, you'll learn to facilitate the use of technology to support your students and your school, regardless of whether that technology is a smartphone, a tablet or a wireless mobile computer.
All of our education graduates receive a K-12 educational technology endorsement. It's built right into the degree. This means our teachers not only know how to integrate technology into their classrooms, but they can teach computer classes at elementary, middle and high school levels.
