CSU's Department of Teacher Education in collaboration with the College of Letters and Sciences and the College of the Arts offers:
A unit of CSU's College of Education and Health Professions, the department works with several other academic units to prepare students to become early childhood, middle grades and high school teachers. All programs are approved by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission and accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.
Faculty and courses
All of the department's full-time, tenured faculty hold terminal degrees in their disciplines, and many are nationally and internationally known. Courses are delivered using traditional methods and modern technologies, including online, distance learning and web-enhanced instruction. Campus courses are taught in technology-equipped classrooms.
Enroll in UTCH 1201 Step 1: Inquiry Approaches to Teaching, and you will obtain firsthand experience with planning and teaching inquiry-based math or science lessons in elementary classrooms. A veteran classroom teacher will guide and mentor you through this entire experience. Upon completion of the course, we will reimburse your in-state tuition!

CSU's educator preparation unit and all educator preparation programs will be reviewed by a Board of Examiners representing the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC) and National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). An offsite review of the Institutional Report and Exhibits will take place in Spring 2012, followed by the onsite visit in February 2013.
