The Education Program
UE's School of Education offers a challenging curriculum in a supportive environment, preparing tomorrow's teachers with the tools they will need to succeed in their own classroom.
School of Education students at the University of Evansville learn to teach by engaging in purposeful activities within the local schools -- even before student teaching. In fact, by the time you graduate from UE you will have spent 1,000 hours in school classrooms. Learning is not done alone: faculty have a strong relationship with local schools, and you will work closely with professors who on average, have 17 years of teaching experience in elementary, middle and high schools. That compares to a national college and university faculty average of two to three years of in-school experience.
The Education curriculum is rigorous and relevant, focusing on the mastery of technology skills and research-based practices in curriculum development, instructional differentiation, data-driven assessment, and cultural competency. The School of Education has been educating teachers since 1871 and has had the prestigious National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) certification since the 1950s (Beginning in 2013, NCATE becomes CAEP - the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation).
