Certificate in Catholic Education

Are you called to a more faith-filled education? No matter your choice of study as an undergraduate, you can complement your major with a Catholic education certificate at the University of Dayton. Through our interdisciplinary program focused on Catholic values and education, you'll gain the historical, cultural, catechetical and spiritual background necessary for teaching in Catholic schools or pursuing parish ministry. Including courses through the departments of teacher education and religious studies, our program provides opportunities for you as a pre-service teacher education student to develop the skills and abilities that Catholic school administrators seek. As you earn your certificate, you'll develop as a leader, an individual and may even discover a calling to a future in Catholic education or in another ecclesiastic area.
