At Castleton University, we know it takes a University and a community of educators to prepare you to be a teacher.
You will have the opportunity to choose a major in the liberal arts and sciences and work toward licensure in elementary education or secondary education. You may also work toward an endorsement in special education in K-8 or 7-12. To support your program planning, you will be assigned two academic advisors: one in education and one in your chosen major.
To further develop as a future teacher, you will also choose a four-course liberal arts concentration that further deepens content knowledge in an area such as math or literature. On occasion students choose a major by contract in mathematics, history, literature, or the sciences.
Castleton pre-service teachers learn to teach through various school relationships and community partnerships that are built throughout your course of study.
Additionally, our local school professionals come to Castleton to study at the master’s level in order to reflect upon and to research educational questions. Castleton University offers graduate programs in Education, Curriculum and Instruction, Special Education, and Educational Leadership.
