You’ll learn innovative techniques and the latest technology to prepare you to teach and motivate learners in your own classroom.

While you’re here, you can join the PTCO (Professional Teacher Candidate Organization), for great networking opportunities as well as training and preparation for the job search.

Based on your academic achievements, you can also participate in our chapters of the Gamma Chi and Pi Lambda Theta honor societies.

Courses

"My favorite class was ancient world because I think every person is curious about the beginning of humanity. So taking a class where we not only learned through the text, but actually did simulations of early civilization was exciting for me personally as a hands-on learner."
