Creating Quality Teachers
The NC State College of Education cultivates high-quality teaching candidates by combining cutting-edge, solution-driven research, technology and scholarship with the opportunity to learn from innovative faculty and partners.
Students gain classroom experience as early as sophomore year, allowing them to forge early paths in the areas of teaching, learning and educational leadership. The College of Education offers degrees in teaching from K-12 in fields ranging from elementary and middle grades education to mathematics and science education.
Flexibility is part of what differentiates NC State from its peers: each of our programs offers students the opportunity to earn multiple licensures and bachelor degrees while completing only one program. We also offer experiential education on a global scale, with overseas student teaching programs in Russia, Brazil and China.
