Intervention Specialist Education majors also may choose to pursue their Master of Education (M.Ed.) degree. Many ODU alumni choose to return to Ohio Dominican for their graduate education.
Students benefit from career assistance and guidance from the Career Development Center. The center hosts an annual Education Interview Day during which area school districts come to ODU to interview graduating Education majors for teaching positions in their district.
Upon graduation, students will be prepared to teach in K-12 schools in both Mild to Moderate (MM) and/or Moderate to Intensive (MI) programs. Students who take advantage of ODU’s dual major option will be more marketable for employment because they can teach in the MM and MI, and/or early childhood, and/or middle childhood programs. Graduates are prepared to teach in most states in the United States because of the requirement to take the Praxis II and Praxis II PLT tests, and National Teacher Performance Assessment (edTPA). Intervention specialists can also become providers of in-home and adult services.
