About Education

Our program provides an excellent foundation for the country’s next generation of teachers, including you! The program is nationally accredited, incorporating effective teaching, learning, and field experiences across all levels of the program.

As an education major, you'll select another discipline as a dual major, giving you deep subject matter knowledge. You'll also get hands-on teaching experience in a range of school sites, and graduate with certification in both general and special education for grades 1-6. If you minor in education, you'll be ready for an accelerated master's degree in grades 7-12. We also offer graduate studies in education. Our graduates are proud teachers and leaders as they make a difference in the lives of youth every day.
