Math with an emphasis in Secondary Education

The education department here is phenomenal. I knew that this was the place to be if I wanted to be a teacher.

Marissa wasn't sure she wanted to go to the same school her older brother attended but after her first visit, she had to do it again. “It was the only school I visited twice.”

“The education department here is phenomenal. I knew that this was the place to be if I wanted to be a teacher.” The education department at Doane allows students to have hands-on experience teaching in the classroom to help them decide if it is the right career for them, which is something Marissa appreciated. “There is a 100% guarantee placement in the education department so I can be confident that I will have a job and I’m going to be fully prepared to be the best teacher that I can be.”

In addition to academics, Marissa has also found success in athletics. “Everybody has a place here on campus. So no matter what your major is or what you’re involved in, you are important piece of this puzzle here at Doane.”
