Neag School of Education Teacher Education


The Neag School of Education offers two programs leading to teacher certification

• Integrated Bachelor's/Master's (IB/M) Teacher
  Preparation Program

• Teacher Certification Program for College Graduates

The IB/M Teacher Preparation Program is a highly competitive five-year comprehensive teacher preparation program that integrates coursework and school-based clinic experiences facilitated by university and K-12 faculty in the preparation of pre-service teachers. Based on principles established by the Holmes Partnership and the work of John Goodlad and his colleagues at the National Network of Educational Renewal, the IB/M Teacher Preparation Program was established to prepare preservice teachers to meet the needs of all students in all types of learning environments.

Over the past few years, U.S. News & World Report has ranked the IB/M program among the top 25 teacher preparation programs in Elementary Education, Secondary Education, and Special Education. We are nationally accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education as well as the Connecticut State Board of Education. Further, certification through the IB/M program is recognized by forty states through the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education & Certification Interstate Contract.

Building on the existing strengths of the IB/M Teacher Preparation Program the Neag School of Education developed the Teacher Certification Program for College Graduates (TCPCG) for college graduates who wish to gain teacher certification. The TCPCG program, offered on the Greater Hartford and Waterbury campuses, shares with the IB/M program a strong commitment to high standards, extensive clinical experience, and a concern for the development of reflective and analytic practitioners, for urban and multicultural issues in education, and for teacher leadership.
