Make memories in the classroom

Elevate your teaching and leadership skills with the College of Education

Teachers care about education, including their own continued growth and development. We are dedicated to serving you as you work to reach your goals both in and out of the classroom. With over 25 years of experience in teacher education, we can help you elevate your teaching abilities and gain valuable leadership skills.

Our programs are designed to fill the needs of aspiring teachers, those that have already started their careers and those seeking to refine their skills and move into administration. We also have programs covering adult education and the practice of adult learning theory.

More than just the facts

Knowledge is more than what you learn from a text book. It is the sum of all of your experiences in and out of the classroom, including your successes and failures. It is the insight you gain as you work in the field and interact with those around you. Knowledge is more practical and valuable than facts alone, and it’s exactly what you gain during your time as Phoenix.

Our degrees relate to the demands of the today’s education environment, preparing you with knowledge and skills that you can instantly put to work. You’ll benefit from a thorough and well-designed curriculum, innovative tools that give you hands-on practice and the guidance of experienced instructors with advanced degrees.

Everything we do revolves around helping you become the type of educator that truly makes an impact.
