Empowerment through education

A Message from the Department

Socio-economic advantages, language, disabilities, and race too often predict academic outcomes in the Central Valley.  It is increasingly urgent for schools to improve educational achievements and break the persistence of inequity.  The Department of Teacher Education deepens this commitment by recruiting, preparing, and supporting educators who are strongly equipped to make sure that all students succeed, regardles of circumstance.

Our various programs strive to accelerate the achievement of all students through the preparation, support, and retention of exceptional teachers who are advocates for children and their communities.

The Department of Teacher Education at CSU Stanislaus is serious about its mission to prepare the state's educators.  Maybe that's why, semester after semester, the department's programs are of the highest demand among the University's graduate students, and our teacher candidates are among the first to be hired by schools in the region. 

To learn much more about the Department of Teacher Education's program offerings, view any of the appropriate tabs listed on the left column.  We look forward to helping you on your educational journey.
