Welcome! The Division of Teacher Education (DTE) is based upon democratic ideals, educational equity, cultural sensitivity, caring and committed professionalism, and an intellectually vital community. We are committed to facilitating the learning and development of our candidates who, in turn, can successfully affect the learning and development of P-12 students in schools. We offer teaching authorization in Early Childhood, Elementary, Middle Level and High School. Below you will find brief descriptions of teacher preparation programs offered by the DTE.
Similarly structured while accommodating different populations, the undergraduate program leads to a bachelor's degree, while the post-bac program is for those who already hold a bachelor's degree and want to earn their first teaching license. The 38-41 credit hour program is in a full-time format, which takes three terms to complete.
The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at WOU is designed to provide second career and non-traditional students an opportunity to earn initial teacher licensure, authorization to teach high school (middle school is optional), and a graduate degree. The MAT is 53 - 54 credit hours which are available as a full-time on-campus program or a part-time online program.
A 45 credit hour master's degree, the MSEd may be completed on either a full-time or part-time basis. It meets Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission requirements for the Initial II License. There are also options to add additional endorsements and authorization levels to your existing teaching license.
An MSEd degree in Information Technology opens doors to teachers, trainers, and informal educators alike. Complete the program entirely online, or combine online and on-campus classes. Flexible schedules allow you to finish the degree in as few as five terms, or as many as five years.
The Office of Field Services and Teacher Licensure oversees teacher candidate placements during practicum and student teaching experiences. Staff provide guidance on, and insure adherance to, the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices (TSPC) requirements.
The Division of Teacher Education offers endorsements and specializations in many areas. Please visit the links to find courses and contact information about each unique opportunity to extend the value of your teaching license.Special Educator
