While we pride ourselves on our global reach and outlook, we also appreciate the value of local influence in the field of education. What differentiates the College of Education from many other universities is that many of our degree programs not only meet national standards, but also have been approved by individual state departments of education to prepare teaching candidates for licensure in their home states.*
If you love the classroom and want to take on leadership responsibilities within your school community, earn a Master of Arts in Education/Teacher Leadership.
If you're ready to develop more supervisory skills, prepare for licensure as a principal with our Master of Arts in Education/Administration and Supervision.
