Certificate in Catholic Education

The undergraduate Catholic education certificate is an interdisciplinary program designed for University of Dayton students enrolled in any major. The program includes courses in the departments of teacher education and religious studies, and prepares students with historical, cultural, catechetical and spiritual background that is particularly relevant for students interested in teaching in Catholic schools or pursuing parish ministry. Embedded within the program are opportunities for preservice teacher education students to develop competencies and dispositions that are considered desirable by Catholic school administrators, while for others it may provide experience that may help the student to discern a call to a career in Catholic education or in another ecclesial area.
