Thank you for your interest in the School of Education at Stevenson University. Stevenson offers teacher preparation programs in the following areas: Early Childhood Education (PreK-Grade 3), Elementary Education (Grades 1-6), Middle School Math and Science (Grades 4-9), and Middle School English/Language Arts and Social Studies (Grades 4-9). Teacher candidates, as we refer to students in the education programs, demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to be competent, highly-qualified, and caring professionals in public and private schools.
The curriculum in all programs provides candidates with a strong foundation in math, science, technology, and the liberal arts. Candidates have a thorough understanding of child development and its impact on educational practices. The sequence of courses is based on an integration of theory and practice, and includes supervised field placements in public and private schools. These placements begin in the fall semester of the sophomore year and continue with a year-long internship, which is completed in a Professional Development School in the senior year.
Candidates at Stevenson University experience individual attention from faculty members who are dedicated to your educational and career success. I invite you to learn more about the School of Education at Stevenson University.
