Overview

Areas of emphasis

Teacher education at the University focuses not only on a sound academic preparation, but also on strong professional preparation with specific emphasis given to moral and ethical issues embedded in what it means to teach. Degree programs and certification programs offered by the Department of Education are rooted in the mission of the University of Dallas and build from the strong foundation of the core curriculum.

UD Core courses are taken Freshman and Sophomore year.

Directed Teaching (Student Teaching) is a requirement for Texas state certification but is not a requirement of the Interdisciplinary Studies Major. This means that a student can graduate with the Interdisciplinary Studies Major without doing student teaching. Also, Directed Teaching can be completed as a post baccalaureate student.
