Your Teaching Communication Concentration

Tiffin University’s teaching concentrations help high school teachers with an MEd degree earn the credits required to teach Communication at the college level. Each certificate program has a 12 credit-hour core of classes and 18 credit hours of the discipline curriculum. This program does not lead to licensure.

  • Teaching Communication: Leads students through the history and practice of media, communication and related technology from ancient times to the digital age. Introduces political, legal and social ramifications of 21st- century media practices.

Practical Education

There is a national shortage of CCP teachers. In 2015, the State of Ohio implemented the CCP program and mandated that all public higher education organizations provide college-level classes to high school students. Graduates of this program are credentialed to teach english, communication or art at the high school and undergraduate college level.
