Program in Teacher Preparation

Are you interested in a long-term career or a short-term experience in teaching? The Program in Teacher Preparation provides rigorous academic experiences and authentic field-based learning, to empower students to become caring educators who know their subjects, understand learning and teaching and apply these skills in a variety of professional settings. 

The program provides learning opportunities that build upon your subject area expertise and develop your theoretical and professional knowledge base using research of effective practices and accepted standards within the profession. It requires that you demonstrate and defend the application of your acquired knowledge and skills in the classroom. Our students collaborate with a range of partners to create and maintain a professional network. We offer integrated outreach programs that support your learning and benefit our community. The program also assists you in the transition from the University to a professional environment by helping you find placements and offering support to you in your first years of service.
