About the Preparation Program*
The teacher education program at Union College develops teachers who are fully competent in their fields and who are excellent at the craft of teaching. Students complete a three-tiered educational experience, beginning with the liberal education core curriculum. These courses expose students to the arts and sciences to broaden their world view and stretch them academically. The second level of experience involves the selection of an area of specialization. For secondary education majors, this specialization can take the form of a traditional major (30 semester hours), or can be a broad area of specialization (48 semester hours). Elementary grades majors select an area of academic concentration (21 semester hours). Middle grades majors complete two teaching fields of at least 24 semester hours each. The capstone of the teacher education program is the professional preparation sequence of courses. These courses take the student from a theoretical study of the field of teaching through practical and clinical experiences, culminating in a twelve-week student teaching assignment.
