Program Objectives

The Department of Education offers teacher education programs for students seeking teaching careers in specific subject areas for grades kindergarten through twelve. Most of the programs are inter-departmental, whereby students will be advised primarily through their major department in addition to education. Therefore, students will enroll in the departments offering the teaching options in their chosen areas.

In addition to its K-12 programs, the Department of Education provides foundation coursework which is valuable to teachers at all levels in such areas as educational psychology, multicultural education, assessment, curriculum, technology education, and exceptionality.
