Overview

Teacher Education at UNO is dedicated to your success and the success of our region's children and teens. As an undergraduate student you will receive one-on-one guidance from an instructional coach who will give you meaningful feedback on your skills as you practice teaching in one of our many partner schools.

This process will prepare you for the clinical practice experience and the real world of teaching upon graduation. As a graduate student in one of our award-winning programs, you'll experience blended learning with distance friendly classes taught by professors with PK-12 classroom experience.

Whether you want to teach kindergarten or high school math, whether you are a first year student or an experienced educator seeking more skills, you will benefit from the unique network of support offered by our department, UNO and the schools of our city. You will receive the opportunities you need and the support you can rely on to become a dedicated practitioner, a reflective scholar and a responsible citizen.

The Educator Preparation Programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Nebraska State Department of Education. The Library Science/School Librarian Program is nationally recognized by the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) / American Library Association (ALA).
