For our Students


We offer undergraduate coursework leading to certification in early childhood education, elementary education, special education, and secondary teacher education, as well as graduate programs in educational administration and curriculum and instruction. If you are interested in teacher certification, please see our certification page.


Most of the programs in teaching, learning and leadership require some sort of internship or student teaching experience. The undergraduate teacher education programs in early childhood education, elementary education, special education and secondary education have multiple field experiences including a year of residency. Graduate programs include some form of internship. These internships are part of the expected coursework in these programs
