Teacher Preparation Program

We're here to help you!

In the Michigan State University College of Education, teachers are prepared to lead. As a Spartan teacher, you will master not only your content areas but the most recent research-based knowledge of instruction and curriculum. Over the course of the Teacher Preparation Program, you will gain more than 1,000 hours of classroom experience, including a full-school year teaching internship that sets Spartan teachers apart.

Improving the Future, as a Spartan

The world needs more great teachers. MSU prepares teachers willing to keep learning, meet the needs of each student and improve the future through every lesson they teach.

Specialized Areas of Study

You can choose elementarysecondary or special education. Whomever they teach, Spartan teachers recognize the need to improve education for all learners. By enrolling in one of two cohort programs, you can also gain specialized skills for teaching in particularly high-need settings, such as internationally diverse classrooms and those in under-resourced urban communities. Cohort members begin working together as a close-knit community from day one of freshmen year.
