As you know, the need for school systems to close in response to Coronavirus has caused rapid changes as teachers, students and families all adjust to remote learning.  Faculty in the OSU College of Education are moving forward with robust programs for preparing teachers regardless of the modality of teaching offered, both at OSU and in the public schools. This spring term our Teacher Candidates moved smoothly into remote teaching and learning, working virtually with their cooperating teachers in the schools and with their professors and peers at OSU. 

The College of Education is prepared to help you become a teacher next year, working in all modes of delivery that are available to us, and in coordination with guidance from state education and public health leaders.  Please contact an advisor to see how you can apply and join us next year as a Teacher Candidate.


Accepted applicants: contact Sara Wright at [email protected]

Right now OSU employees are working remotely. Please email us rather than calling until further notice.

Become a teacher

Earn two degrees concurrently – education and a content area with a teaching license reciprocal in 45 states.

This program uses a collaborative cohort approach that allows you to build rapport and professional relationships with fellow pre-service educators.

The Education Double Degree program enables students to earn two undergraduate degrees concurrently – one in their chosen field and one in education. Our nation’s communities, schools, and organizations will demand a minimum of 2.2 million new teachers and educational leaders over the next decade and these educators must be prepared to meet today’s educational challenges. New, more accessible undergraduate options in the Education Double Degree provide a means for addressing gaps. Become an educational leader in subject areas including family and consumer sciences, health, language arts, mathematics, the sciences, and social studies.
