About

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction at University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff has as its major function the professional preparation of licensed teachers at the early childhood, middle and secondary levels.  The programs lead to the Bachelor of Science degree and Master of Education degree.

To meet and carry out these functions, the department offers a strong Teacher Education Preparation Program recognized by the Arkansas Department of Education, the Arkansas Department of Higher Education and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), now its called CAEP. Additionally the department offers a non-licensure degree program in Rehabilitation Studies and a Special Education Endorsement Program as well.Programs are being revised due to Arkansas Department of Education Teacher Licenses. 

Teacher Licenses have changed.  Early Childhood Education, PK-4 grades, will no longer be in effect beginning Fall 2015, however, Elementary Education, K-6 grades, will return.  Special Education as an undergraduate program will become active in Fall 2015.  Middle Childhood Education, Grades 4-8, will allow an individual to choose two areas of concentrations from Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, and Science.
