University of Pittsburgh is a great choice for education. They offer diverse content area certification, and is a nationally recognized school. The workload is difficult but pays off. Next I would recommend Point Park University in Pittsburgh. The School of Education takes a humanistic approach to education, but the courses are extremely relevant to the real world. I have used my teaching education from Point Park to get a variety of education and education-related jobs. Other great choices would be Duquesne University, Penn State University, University of Pennsylvania, Villanova University, and Lehigh University.
When choosing a college there are many factors to consider: location, tuition, campus life, resources, campus amenities, and so much more! Take your time when choosing a university so you can end up somewhere you really love! And don't forget to tour the campus--that's super important. Good luck!
Patty recommends the following next steps:
- Research universities
- Set up a campus tour
- Ask as many questions as possible
- Look into shadowing a college student for a day
