Undergraduate studies are built around a strong liberal arts-based academic background, child development and pedagogy courses reflecting the latest research on teaching and learning, and incorporating standards- and performance-based instruction and assessment. Students intern in area Professional Development Network schools, guided by on-site University faculty, mentoring teachers and other participating K-12 educators.
Students proceed through the critical first two years and the Teacher Candidacy application process at the end of the sophomore year with the assistance of a full-time Advising Center, staffed by skilled advisors. After being admitted to Teacher Candidacy, they begin working with faculty advisors in various areas of specialization. Throughout the program, students develop an e-folio which documents their learning and professional growth and serves as a valuable self-marketing asset. The college’s computer lab offers instruction, problem solving and practice using the latest equipment and educational software.Teachers specializing in the acute shortage areas of math, physical science, foreign language and special education are highly sought by schools nationwide.
