At Lander, we work closely with public school officials to maintain a curriculum that enables you to obtain the knowledge and skills needed to meet the challenges of teaching. As a student in our teacher education program, you'll take a sequence of courses from general education, specialized content, professional education, and a series of field experiences that culminate with student teaching.

In addition, Lander has earned accreditation by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).  All teacher education programs are accredited by the appropriate professional associations.
