WILLIAMSPORT, PA (09/06/2010)(readMedia)-- Michael Maurer of Towanda, Pa. is set to begin the professional student teaching semester through Lycoming College. Maurer will be placed at Williamsport Area High School in Williamsport, Pa.
First offered in 1955, the education program remains one of Lycoming's most popular courses of study. Unlike most of the state system universities which offer education as a major, Lycoming provides its future teachers the breadth and depth of a strong liberal arts education. Students choose an academic major and, with the help of their advisors, follow a carefully planned sequence of professional education courses, enriched by extensive field experiences in nearby schools.
Founded in 1812 in Williamsport, Pa., Lycoming College is a national liberal arts and sciences college dedicated to the undergraduate education of more than 1,400 students. Lycoming is one of the 50 oldest colleges in the nation. For more information, visit www.lycoming.edu.
