The Ohio State University at Mansfield

Undergraduate Program

Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.Ed.)


The Mansfield campus offers two Bachelor's Degrees with licensure, one in early childhood education (grades PK-5) and one in middle childhood education (grades 4-9), with an option to receive the middle childhood generalist. Admission into the licensure program is selective and requires a minimum 2.75 grade point average. At the time of application, it is expected that students have completed the general education pre-major courses and, for those in the middle childhood program, the coursework in two areas of concentration.

A third Bachelor’s Degree, Child and Youth Studies, is a non-licensure degree. Students who are interested in making a positive impact in a community through education or who are committed to social justice and equal opportunity for all will find this coursework and field experiences instrumental in shaping their career path. A degree in Child and Youth Studies will provide them with the knowledge and skills needed to shape the future through community-based programs and services.
