Pathways to Teaching
Swarthmore students come to an interest in teaching at many points during their own educational careers - some before they enter college, others during their four undergraduate years, and some as they investigate possible careers after Swarthmore. We encourage students to explore the many opportunities available to them in the field of education.
· Mentoring and tutoring opportunities offered through Swarthmore.
We also provide here job resources for students with certification and job resources for all students as well as our Current job listings. Career Services can also provide support for you as you explore your options in the field of education.
As a first step, the Educational Studies faculty recommend that students enroll in our introductory course, EDUC14, Introduction to Education, which examines a broad range of topics in the field of education through readings and fieldwork. Introduction to Education is offered each semester.
Faculty in the Department of Educational Studies are happy to work with you to find the program that is most appropriate for your immediate and long-term goals in education.
