The School of Education, housed under the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, is committed to excellence in teacher preparation through classroom instruction, diverse field experiences, collaborative partnerships, and research-based innovative best practices. Our graduates are sought after for employment and make significant contributions in long-term careers in the field of education.
The School of Education offers bachelor’s degrees with teacher licensure in Elementary Education (K-6) and Middle Childhood Education (4-8), and an Associate of Applied Science in Early Childhood Education for those preparing to work in a preschool setting. In addition, the School of Education partners with colleges on the UAFS campus to offer secondary education licensure in English, Biology, History, Mathematics, and K-12 Spanish and Music.
UAFS is one of two teacher education programs in the state to incorporate Professional Development Schools. Selected courses are taught on-site in the public schools, in two different school districts. Teacher candidates visit classrooms to observe experienced educators in action, followed by hands-on opportunities to implement effective instructional strategies with public school students.
