The School of Education at Utah Valley University has grown from 30 students in early childhood and elementary education in 1996 to nearly 900 students presently in the program.

The performance of UVU students after graduation has received positive feedback from district teachers and administrators across the state of Utah and across the nation. UVU teacher candidates are heavily recruited by service area districts and many receive contracts before graduation has even been completed!

The UVU teacher education program received national accreditation from the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) and Council for Accreditation of Educational Programs in the spring 2013. 

Education is an exciting profession filled with opportunities. If you like to work with young people, this may be a perfect place for you. Give us a call or come and talk to our advisors about participating in the program (801) 863-8478.
