Teacher Preparation Program Report

The Teacher Preparation Program provides certification candidates with professional preparation through early hands-on learning experiences, small class sizes, and caring faculty. Candidates integrate a liberal arts background, content preparation, and educational principles to prepare for careers in teaching at the elementary and secondary school levels or in an interdisciplinary synthesis of Psychology and Education. Prior to graduation, teacher candidates will have completed approximately 650 hours in a classroom, giving them the opportunity to apply techniques and practices in an educational setting. Candidates also are given opportunities to expand on the benefits of being global citizens who benefit and appreciate multi-cultural experiences.

The Department of Education offers majors in Elementary Education Grades K-6, and an Interdisciplinary major in Psychology and Education. Minors are available in Multi-categorical Special Education with Autism PreK-K, K-6 or 5-Adult and Secondary Education (Art, Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics, Physical Education, Social Studies, and Spanish). Additionally, an Endorsement in Reading is offered.

The Teacher Preparation Program is affiliated with the Association for Advancing Quality in Educator Preparation (AAQEP).
