Students walking through the academic quad

The Education curriculum prepares teachers for elementary and secondary schools. Teaching at any of these levels requires three major areas of preparation: (1) thorough knowledge of the subject matter, (2) understanding of the learners, and (3) study of the means whereby knowledge is communicated. The first of these competencies is provided through courses designed to give breadth and depth in the liberal arts, while the other two are provided through the courses in education. These last two aim to have each student gain an understanding of the learners' characteristics, the curriculum, the methods of teaching, the theories of learning and teaching, the relationship between theory and practice, and the school as a social institution.
