Overview

The Secondary Education (Political Science) program at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga provides preparation for individuals seeking to work within public and private educational institutions; and agencies serving families and children. Programs, in most cases, lead to licensure or credentialing and in every case prepare thoughtful, informed practitioners of learning and leading. Course work is shaped around the development of a reflective practice model.

The School of Education offers approved programs leading to the Bachelor of Science degree and eligibility for teacher licensure in Tennessee and in those states that grant reciprocity privileges to graduates of institutions accredited by CAEP. Within the early childhood major students may pursue teacher licensure in early childhood or a child and family studies concentration for non educators.
