 Program RequirementsEntering the Profession

In the College of Education, we believe that teachers are best prepared with increasing opportunities to work in a public school classroom with school age children. In conjunction with required college course work, teacher candidates spend significant time with mentor teachers in field experience settings. Most College of Education faculty have P-12 teaching experience that strengthens their credibility in our teacher preparation programs.
We welcome all students interested in teaching! If you have previous college coursework or are transferring to UW, see the link below. We work closely with community colleges throughout the state to ensure your success. Explore the curriculum by viewing program sheets or see sample courses offered.
