Teachers in the Lalanne program can choose from the following programs, all awarded as a Master of Science in Education (MSE) from the University of Dayton:

  • Interdisciplinary Education Studies (MSE): Candidates must select concentration coursework from both the School of Education and Health Sciences and at least one department outside SEHS. Students working toward State of Ohio-issued licenses in visual arts or music education programs apply for this degree. The program leads to a State of Ohio-issued teaching license for grades PK-12. The State of Ohio requires passing scores on the Ohio Assessment for Educators. 
  • Literacy (MSE): Prepares you to assume professional and leadership roles related to literacy, primarily in a school setting. The curriculum addresses the most recent research, theory and policy related to literacy as well as in-depth study of accomplished instructional practice.
  • Teacher as Leader (MSE): Opportunity to pursue professional development and leadership opportunities outside of building and district administration. Teachers pursuing this degree would likely fulfill roles such as instructional leader, lead teacher, mentor teacher and curriculum committee member. All candidates in this major must complete the teacher leader core sequence; several options are available for specialty areas. The teacher as leader major does not meet the requirements for the state of Ohio issued teacher leader endorsement, which is a post-master's program.
  • Technology-Enhanced Learning (MSE): Prepares in-service teachers to integrate technology-enhanced learning into their own teaching and to assist other professionals in their buildings in accomplishing the same. The courses focus on helping master's candidates increase teacher and student learning in the context of a technology-enhanced, problem-based learning environment.
