School of Education

Teaching and learning in the UA College of Education blend together to sketch the new direction of future educators and molders of the youth. The academic vision of becoming a prime breeding ground of teachers of the new millennium entails championing change and challenges of curricular competence and competitiveness.

The 21 st century pre-service teacher is the typical learner who exhibits a new set of capacities and interests that greatly influence patterns of learning and curricular dimensions. The UA-COE graduate epitomizes the professional teacher who is spiritually, academically, and socially mindful about work.
