McDaniel produces the best teachers in Maryland. (That’s what an English teacher could call hyperbole… except  we have the data to back it up.) What’s the secret to our success? Well, it starts with you. Your passion. Your empathy. Your desire to help others learn and grow.

For over 110 years, McDaniel College has successfully prepared teachers for careers in elementary and secondary education with accreditation in the sciences, music, art, social studies, mathematics, language instruction, and physical education.

McDaniel’s program is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education and leads to certification in Maryland and the more than 45 states involved in the Interstate Reciprocity Agreement (PDF).


The Educator Preparation Program (EPP) at McDaniel College is data-driven in its continuous improvement efforts. Multiple measures are used to document candidate performance in courses and their accompanying practicum experiences in Professional Development Schools. The EPP Assessment System includes data collected at four transition points:

  • Transition Point 1: Admission to the Program
  • Transition Point 2: Admission to the Final Professional Semester (Student Teaching)
  • Transition Point 3: Completion of the Final Professional Semester (Student Teaching)
  • Transition Point 4: College to Career

Faculty and key stakeholders annually review data from the assessment system to guide program and course improvements.
