Degree programs in the Department of Education prepare candidates for entry level teaching positions to roles in higher education.The teacher preparation program at the undergraduate and graduate level is grounded in standards-based curricula that provide teacher candidates with relevant course work in teaching and learning that leads to certification in specialized programs. Teacher candidates acquire a knowledge base and cognitive understanding of evidence-based best practices and are able to apply these through their experiences in a variety of authentic professional practices in urban, suburban, and rural settings. Experiential learning opportunities for freshman begin with tutoring experiences during the first semester and evolve during subsequent semesters into internships, professional apprenticeships, practica, and student teaching.  Graduate students may also prepare for entry into practice in early childhood and elementary education. They are provided with similar experiential opportunities within an adult learner context. The Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership – leading to the Doctor of Education  (Ed.D.) degree – reflects the latest thinking and research on leadership, organizations, and institutional change, particularly in higher education. It offers a rich teaching and learning environment shaped by faculty research studies, which are connected to and informed by our community partners.

The Department of Education fully supports the University’s mission of “a private university with a public purpose” by engaging in collaborative partnerships to benefit students and inform practice.  All candidates grow as reflective practitioners in an environment of “excellence through relevance.”
