We strive to prepare knowledgeable, creative, culturally responsive teachers who foster the development and growth of learners by engaging them in worthwhile learning experiences framed by inquiry and meaningful assessment.

Note: As of Fall 2021, the Education Department will not be accepting new cohorts of students to Teacher Certification Programs housed in the Education Department (English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Foreign Languages).
