Educator Preparation Program

Mission Statement


The Whitlowe R. Green College of Education Educator Preparation Program and Services is designed to offer training, support, and field experiences to prospective candidates interested in pursuing a variety of initial teacher certifications and/or professional level certifications. All candidates are provided opportunities for learning, study, professional growth, research, and collaboration with local school districts and professional organizations. Candidates may seek initial teacher certification through our traditional undergraduate program, or through the Alternative Teacher Certification Program. Professional certifications are offered for masters level candidates who meet admission requirements for the educational diagnostician, school counselor, principal, or superintendent programs. We strive to produce educators and administrators who will have a positive impact on diverse student populations, schools, families, and the community. Our Educator Preparation Services Office will assist you with Program Admission, Field Experiences (Clinical Teaching, Internship, or Practicum) as well as TExES examination preparation, and certification.
