Admission into a Teacher Education Program

Ready to take the next step and become a candidate in our Education Program? To be eligible, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Successfully complete your first two semesters, both of which require mandatory field experience;
  • Demonstrate evidence of appropriate professional teacher dispositions;
  • Successfully pass a candidacy interview with faculty of the Education Department.

All Education majors are expected to work closely with faculty advisors to follow the identified sequence of courses for their particular major. Students with secondary advisors outside of the College of Professional Programs should meet with their primary Education faculty advisor each semester to keep tabs on changing policies and requirements, and for course approval.
