School of Education


The School of Education prepares competent, caring and qualified individuals who are ready to assume the role of teacher in elementary and secondary schools, as well as prepare them for further career choices and advancement. The professional program provides essential coursework and experiences to support students as they progress toward becoming professional educators. Students are engaged in research-based and standards-based instruction in content and pedagogy. Candidates are expected to plan, instruct, and assess in a manner that meets curriculum, school and district goals as well as the diverse instructional and experiential needs of all students. Candidates reflect on their own practice and performance, analyze progress, and make choices for future professional growth. In the Master's program, new knowledge is put into practice in students' own classrooms. Graduates acquire knowledge, skills, and dispositions to positively impact their classroom, school, and community as they continue on the journey of life-long learning.
