Spanning the entire university, the Teacher Education Program is administered through the School of Education and includes majors from the School of Education, the College of Agricultural, Life, and Physical Science, the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Engineering, Computing, Technology, and Mathematics, and the College of Health and Human Sciences.
