About Teacher Education

We take pride in our students' ability to build learning communities through hands-on educational experiences and practical implementation of the curriculum. You'll learn not only from your professors, but from your classmates and your own students to become an outstanding educator.

Whether you're pursuing one of our seven undergraduate degree programs to begin your journey, one of our eight graduate degree programs to advance your career, or our variety of certificates and endorsements, you'll receive the leadership skills necessary to change lives through education and learning.

Did you know?: All of our undergraduate students also earn a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) certificate. A STEM lab and Curriculum Materials Center are among the numerous resources available to our Teacher Education students.
