Welcome to the Teacher Education Program
Our program prepares educators to be leaders for the 21st Century. We offer undergraduate degree and certification programs in Early Childhood Education and Secondary Education and graduate degree programs at the master's level in Curriculum & Instruction and Educational Administration.
The Fishback Center for Early Childhood Education
The Fishback Center for Early Childhood Education's philosophy is grounded in social constructivism and inquiry-based learning. Children are capable, competent, and able to build their knowledge through exploration and social interaction. The program is in conjunction with the Early Childhood Education Program at SDSU. The classrooms are led by SDSU Faculty, who not only teach children, but also support and mentor college students while they gain hands-on experience in teaching. One of the components to the program is our observation booths where families and SDSU students can observe and learn from children engaging in activities in an unobtrusive manner.
