What will I learn?

So you want to teach and you like working with computers? With a computer education degree, you can combine both disciplines. You'll be an educator who prepares students to be technologically literate.

As a Computer Education major, you'll have a strong computer background in web applications, information systems, and programming and network systems. But, you'll also take classes in educational psychology and classroom management, preparing you to teach computers in grades K-12. Upon graduation, you'll receive your teacher certification and a K–12 educational technology endorsement. You will be more than ready to teach and take on the latest trends at all grade levels.

Integrated technology

At DSU, you'll learn to facilitate the use of technology to support your students and your school, regardless of whether that technology is a Smartphone, a tablet or a wireless mobile computer.

All of our education graduates receive a K-12 educational technology endorsement. It's built right into the degree. This means our teachers not only know how to integrate technology into their classrooms, but they can teach computer classes at elementary, middle and high school levels.
