Teacher Education

Remember that teacher you wanted to be like when you grew up? Now is your chance. Bradley’s teacher education degrees give you experience and expertise to mentor children of all ages in any setting. You can choose a degree for the age and subject of your choice or a degree in special education. In addition, you can earn a graduate degree in curriculum and instruction.

You're uniquely prepared for diverse classroom environments through extended time in Pre-K-12 classrooms, including opportunities to work with English Language Learners. Bradley is one of the first universities in Illinois to include the English as a Second Language endorsement in its early childhood, elementary, middle school and special education degrees. You also benefit from field experiences beginning your freshman year. The extra experience gives you more opportunities to teach in classrooms that are culturally and economically diverse.
