Piedmont Triad Education Consortium

All of these departments are engaged in graduate programs leading to master's, specialist's, and/or doctoral degrees. The Department of Curriculum and Instruction and the Department of Specialized Education Services offer undergraduate degrees as well; their Bachelor of Science programs prepare students for Class "A" licensure in North Carolina. Undergraduate majors are available in Elementary and Middle Grades Education, Education of Deaf Children, and Special Education.

The School of Education also supports programs in teacher education conducted under the auspices of other schools (Music; Health and Human Performance; Human Environmental Sciences; Bryan School of Business and Economics) and departments within the College of Arts and Sciences by responding to course requirements in the areas of social, philosophical, and psychological foundations, methodology, and curriculum and student teaching. Recent emphases in competency-based curricula and individualized programming contribute to new designs of teacher education programs.

All licensure programs for school personnel are approved by the North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.

The School of Education continues to seek realization of its goals as a professional school to create and disseminate new knowledge in professional education, to engage in field services and apply research findings, to prepare practitioners, and to study the profession. A general discussion of Teacher Education may be found in Teacher Education Programs.

Departments of the School of Education are listed below with their respective faculties. Students seeking further information on graduate-level programs are referred to The Graduate School Bulletin.
