Bond in the classroom

Because the undergraduate teacher education program requires taking a specific sequence of classes, you'll travel through it with the same cohort of students. That makes it easy to make friends—and create a network of people who can help you throughout your entire career.

Practice in the field

In our Teacher Education Program, you'll get out in the community early and often, working with peers and mentors to put what you're learning into practice. You'll spend time in K–12 classrooms in a variety of environments, and have opportunities to make a real difference in the lives of children long before you graduate.
