Students working on project with wording: Program Requirements Teacher Preparation and Advising Office

Program Requirements

Our Teacher Education Program is one of the premier teacher preparation programs in the United States. The National Education Association (NEA) previously selected UW as a model for teacher education programs across the country. UW was one of the original teacher preparation programs nationally accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) in 1954. We have maintained continuous NCATE accreditation for over 60 years. We are vested in preparations for our next continuing accreditation site review that will occur in spring semester 2016.

In the College of Education (CoEd), we believe that teachers are best prepared with increasing opportunities to work in a public school classroom with school age children. In conjunction with required college course work, teacher candidates spend significant time with mentor teachers in field experience settings. Most CoEd faculty have P-12 teaching experience that strengthens their credibility in our teacher preparation programs.
