We partner with several local schools to provide teacher candidates with unique opportunities in specialized programs for English Language Learners, Special Education students, and Title One students. 
Faculty members are actively engaged in creating professional development activities for teachers and administrators and innovative learning opportunities for K-12 students. Faculty are engaged in cutting edge research in several areas including science education, learning styles, collaborative teaching, children’s literacy, methods for teaching English language learners, and educational policy. 
Admission to the teacher education program is competitive. Students are encouraged to contact the Education Department during their freshman and sophomore years to be assigned an advisor.
