Teaching (Arizona State University)
Teaching requires completion of a four-year bachelor’s degree in either early childhood education, elementary education or secondary education depending on the age level of the students the graduate wishes to teach. Those with a specialized interest in teaching dance, art or special education have a route specifically designed to help them learn in those areas of study.
Graduates complete a student teaching internship during their coursework in which they can apply the skills and knowledge obtained in their study in a classroom. The teaching environment mimics the classroom they plan to teach in once they’ve graduated and completed any necessary state exams.
Students learn best practices grounded in the latest research. Many graduates obtain positions as a result of their senior-year apprenticeship program. The coursework prepares students to take the teacher certification exams for their respective course of study. Graduates can begin teaching in the classroom or move on to further academic study.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
