A double-major approach to learning in education
The teacher preparation program is a double-major program, meaning that all teacher candidates in both elementary and secondary programs complete a major in a department outside of education in addition to their education major.
Students in the education program are assigned an academic advisor and mentor in addition to their advisor in education in order to support the learning, mentorship, and success of the students all the way through graduation. A number of courses are either co-taught or cross-listed in the Department of Education and other departments so that even our faculty and course structures are interwoven to support a well-rounded education.
The result? Students experience an interdisciplinary program of study with values and commitments shared by the entire campus community. It takes the commitment of an entire campus to teach teachers—one individual at a time.
