Preparing excellent teachers—who are effective leaders both inside and outside the classroom—is the number one priority in the Department of Teacher Education.
We offer nationally recognized programs leading to a master’s degree, bachelor’s degree, or certification. Bachelor’s programs involve a wide range of teaching choices including art, early childhood education, elementary education, music, 7 areas of secondary education, and special education; the master’s programs are Curriculum and Instruction and Learning Behavior Specialist I (LBSI), the new state designation for cross-category, broad-based special education.
All are taught by our award-winning faculty, leaders in their fields who have taught in classrooms on four continents, and our education unit is NCATE accredited.
