Department of Education

The Greensboro College Teacher Education Program has been recognized as a leader in teacher preparation in North Carolina.

Through in-class and hands-on learning, such as internships and field experiences, education majors gain real classroom experience and enter the profession as highly qualified teachers. Learning in a supportive, interactive environment that focuses on ethics, codes of conduct and professional teaching standards, students will examine their biases, dispositions and values, and build their potential to make the world a better place by dedicating their lives to future generations.
