Teacher Education

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.
