Using a collaborative cohort approach, this program allows you to build rapport and professional relationships with fellow pre-service educators. 

Students take classes with instructors who have teaching experience in K-12 classrooms. Highly trained supervisors in your content area work closely with you as you complete your student teaching experience.

Our faculty and staff believe teachers are the key to social change and stability in our communities. They provide personalized support students to students through the application, teacher licensure and job application process.

Folks coming back to college looking for a second bachelor's degree are encouraged to apply as a post-baccalaureate student, or may apply to our MS or MAT programs.
