Teaching, Learning and Educational Leadership

Our Approach

We empower leaders. We believe in preparing teachers and scholars who are well grounded in their discipline and pedagogical best practices through:

  • coursework that integrates theory, research and applied practice;
  • education across disciplines, grade levels and educational environments; and
  • clinically-rich field experiences and internships throughout the program.

Substitutes with a Purpose (SWAP) Program

This unique opportunity allows students to complete necessary fieldwork requirements while getting compensated to substitute teach. Through this program, students will establish connections and relationships with local school districts, gain experience by providing instruction, and manage the learning environment. Learn more and apply here as soon as possible; the previous deadline has been extended.
