This program will foster and enhance students' competence in teaching, understanding of current educational research and theory, and knowledge in selected areas of the liberal arts and sciences. It appreciates and recognizes that education occurs across the lifespan in a variety of settings, and its courses reflect these understandings, work to foster these dispositions in students, and actualize these perspectives in practice. It is designed to serve dual functions through two distinct instructional sequences:
