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.p>

Founded in 1812 and celebrating its bicentennial during the 2011-12 academic year, Lycoming College is a national liberal arts and sciences school dedicated to the undergraduate educations of 1,400 students. It offers 35 academic majors and is recognized as a Tier 1 institution by U.S. News & World Report. Located near the banks of the Susquehanna River in Williamsport, Pa., Lycoming is one of the 50 oldest colleges in the nations.
