The Teacher Education Program at AU has been rated as exemplary by the state of Michigan.
The program is nationally accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). It is also approved for teacher certification by the State of Michigan Board of Education and the North American Division Office of Education of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. This means students who graduate from Andrews University are sought after by schools and school districts all across the country. NCATE accreditation also affords students teacher certification reciprocity in most states.
Professors in the Teaching, Learning & Curriculum Department all have real-world classroom experience. Students learn more than just theory; they will learn what works.
