Mission: We prepare students to create the future.
Teacher Preparation Programs: Every education student at Michigan Technological University (MTU) is required to obtain an academic major and minor in his or her chosen field of study. In nearly every case, the rigor and major program are the same as that of the non-education majors. In addition, students at Michigan Technological University gain a wide range of real-world, practical classroom experiences that prepare them for the realities of the modern, technologically oriented classroom. This dedication to content and method means that our graduates have the knowledge to successfully begin a teaching career. The Division of Teacher Education program, in cooperation with the academic departments, provides professional course work in secondary teacher preparation for persons receiving either the Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry, physics, biology, geology, mathematics, computer science, social studies, economics, or engineering or a Bachelor of Arts in English.
Admission Requirements: Candidates desiring admission to secondary teacher certification programs must apply to the Division of Teacher Education and maintain a 2.5 G.P.A. Application is usually made during their junior year. For undergraduate students, the recommendation for admittance comes from the Dean of Students. Postgraduate students seeking admittance must submit 2 letters of recommendation. In addition, all applicants must complete the Conviction Statement form authorizing release of all records and information pertaining to any and all convictions.
Accreditation: The North Central Association of Colleges and Schools accredits Michigan Technological University, the State of Michigan's Periodic Review/Periodic Evaluation program and Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) accredits the Department of Education. The State Teacher Certification Board/Michigan State Board of Education approves all of the university's teacher preparation programs.
