Being an educator is the perfect way to make a difference in someone's life. At Molloy College we respect that time-honored tradition and are dedicated to inspire you, reaffirm you committment to teach and prepare you to enter the classroom as a skilled educator.
Our Division of Education will develop your competency in content knowledge, preparation, instructional delivery, classroom management, student development and assessment, collaboration and reflective and responsive practice. We are proud to say that Molloy-educated teachers are characterized by their depth and breadth of knowledge in the academic content areas and in professional education. In short - we educate some of the finest educators.
Education is a multi-dimensional profession, so to help you better understand the challenges of the contemporary classroom, we will guide you through the philosophical, historical and sociological foundations of education.
