Prospective Students
Do you wish to work with children and make a difference in their lives? The UMBC teacher education programs will provide you the way to become a certified, highly qualified teacher in Maryland, and more than 30 other states. We have programs in early childhood (P-3rd grade), elementary (1st-8th grades), and secondary (7-12th grades), as well as English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)/Bilingual education. Our programs are small with much individual attention.
The mission of the department is to develop teachers who are caring, thoughtful, knowledgeable, skilled, and responsive to children, their families, and communities. If these qualities are ones you possess in some degree and wish to develop further, becoming a leader in schools and an advocate for democracy and social justice, please contact our advisors (click here).
