About Us

The College of Education offers licensure in twenty different teaching areas at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Graduate programs advance professional skills in teaching, technology, reading, and leadership. In 2009, the College was reorganized to include two departments: the Department of Teaching and Learning and the Department of Educational Specialties. The Office of Clinical Teaching serves as a liaison between teacher candidates and the area schools where they gain valuable practical experience.

The Tennessee Early Childhood Training Alliance (TECTA) is housed in the College of Education. The College of Education faculty provides rich experiences for their students and valuable expertise for the community. Read our Vision and Mission to learn more about us.

The Teacher Education Council is a vital component of the teacher education unit as it reviews and approves all courses and programs in teacher education.  The council is appointed by the Dean of Education and includes representatives from faculty engaged in the preparation of teachers, P-12 school representatives, and candidates.
