About the Preparation Program*
Transylvania University's philosophy is that the scope, spirit, analytic approaches, and integration of knowledge inherent in liberal education are the best preparation for life beyond college. Transylvania also recognizes that specific career goals are important and integrates these within individual programs of study. The Teacher Education Program prepares future teachers for elementary, middle, and high school classrooms, with programs leading to certification in math, English, biology, chemistry, and social studies at the secondary level. P-12 certification programs are available in art, integrated music, French, Spanish, and physical education. The entire teacher education program is small, consisting currently of approximately 26 admitted students (all certification levels) and three full-time faculty members. Utilizing an innovative curriculum, the faculty and students place an emphasis upon the importance of caring, learner-centered ways of coming to knowledge and interacting with one another.
