Outstanding Reputation

The College of Education has an outstanding reputation among Arizona school districts and many others around the country, which look to quickly hire its graduates. One of the reasons for this outstanding reputation is that the College of Education professors are highly qualified in their fields, having earned numerous awards as authors, presenters and teachers. They use multiple means of instruction to train learners to use in their own educational environments one day. Teacher preparation programs require learners to spend between100-200 hours in quality practicum/field experiences prior to student teaching or internship.  

After completing the required field experience hours, which include observation, participation and leadership, and passing their state specific content knowledge exam, students are able to begin student teaching. The student teaching experience is 16 weeks in length and the corresponding courses emphasize the importance of learners building relationships with school districts, schools, staff and teachers. Our learners recognize that their actions and interactions with these individuals will make an impact and create an impression of who they are personally and professionally.
