Over the past ten years, the School of Education at Utah Valley University has grown from 30 students in early childhood and elementary education to near 750 students in early childhood, elementary education and secondary education. There are currently fourteen content areas in secondary education with additional areas being developed.
The performance of UVU students after graduation has received positive feedback from district teachers and administrators. UVU teacher candidates are heavily recruited by service area districts and may receive contracts before graduation has been completed.
During spring semester 2008, the UVU teacher education program received national accreditation from the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC). UVU was the first institution in the Utah System of Higher Education to receive TEAC accreditation.
With university status the School of Education will be starting the first masters degree at UVU in August of 2008. It will be a Masters of Education designed to increase the instructional skill in the areas of instructional models and English as a Second Language.
