We hear it all the time, "children are the future." The Teaching and Learning department at UND believes this to be true, and feels that preparing leaders for children is a critical step in shaping this future that our children control.
The Department of Teaching and Learning within the College of Education and Human Development is the primary unit for the preparation of teachers. The Mission of the department articulates the vision of creating professionals who view teaching and learning as a lifelong journey. The department serves as the lead organizational unit for the minor and/or various endorsements at the undergraduate level. The Teacher Education Unit includes programs and faculty involved in the preparation of teachers and other school personnel. Programs within the Department of Teaching and Learning (early childhood, elementary, middle level, and secondary education) education provide both undergraduate and graduate programs. Special education teacher credentials are offered at the graduate level. A Ph.D. in higher education is available.
