Accredited by the National Council on Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), the College of Education and Human Development links coursework to hands-on experience with
students in secondary education settings. Here, the road to your own classroom is through a series of field experiences that support candidates in individual, small group, and whole class instruction in local schools. You will work with students, observe various
teaching styles, and learn what different age-levels are really like in the classroom.

Whether you decide to pursue graduate studies, become a curriculum designer, or a principal, you'll graduate confident in your abilities to instruct students as they mature in their intellectual capabilities and grow into young adults.
