Graceland's teacher education program is noted for excellence in providing a technology emphasis, psychological and sociological foundations, and learning theory. Beginning in the sophomore year, coursework is balanced by extensive field experiences in both public and private schools. Candidates also have the option for international student teaching placements.
Accredited by the Iowa State Department of Education and the Council for Accreditation of Teacher Preparation (CAEP), the Gleazer School of Education offers a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education, which leads to licensure in the state of Iowa in several endorsement areas. Secondary Education students on the Lamoni campus pursue a degree in their field of study and take education coursework for teacher licensure. When planning to teach in a state other than Iowa, students will plan their program in accordance with the requirements of the other state.
Our program is flexible and provides several options for students wishing to pursue a bachelor's degree in teacher education.
