Meet the challenge and achieve the rewards of teaching in the 21st century at ESU.

Our students are engaged in innovative, researcher-base instruction with the latest technology used in schools. Students apply theory and practice in a wide range of educational settings and work alongside master teachers in best-practice Professional Development Schools.

Our mission is to create a community of learners who are competent and reflective professionals able to teach any child in any setting.

Our four-year programs in Early Childhood (Prek-4), Early Childhood Professional, and Middle Level Education are designed to offer students a curriculum of general education and professional early childhood/elementary education and middle level education that combine forward thinking theory with its direct application teaching in our partner schools.  

Students are nurtured to develop beginning educator’s knowledge, skills, and dispositions relevant to content, the learner and the learning environment, teaching and learning process, and professionalism.

See the Course Catalog link above for the requirements of each program including specific courses, GPA, testing and suggested pacing schedules.
