The UNI Teacher Education Program consists of three main coursework components:

  1. The Liberal Arts Core
  2. The teaching major (housed within one of four academic colleges)
  3. The professional licensure core (housed within the College of Education).

Students also complete a minimum of 80 hours of field experience in PK-12 classrooms prior to student teaching as part of their coursework.

Each college offers one or more teaching majors. Click here for a list of teaching majors and minors and contact information.  Additional teaching endorsements can also be earned through the completion of particular groups of courses. Speak with an advisor for more information.
