Teacher Education

Lewis & Clark’s programs for educators prepare you to work in diverse school settings and with all children—including those from different cultural, linguistic, and economic backgrounds, and those who have special needs. Teachers learn to investigate and support each child’s unique growth—academic, social, and emotional—as citizens of the world. Here, extensive content preparation and research-based models form the basis of a rich intellectual experience and ensure your success beyond the classroom.

For Prospective Teachers

We offer programs for prospective teachers who want to teach in elementary or secondary school settings and for those interested in pursuing an ESOL Endorsement. If you do not have a teaching license, the “prospective teachers” programs are for you.

For Current Teachers

For current teachers who want advanced professional development, we offer a variety of master’s degree, endorsement, and certificate programs, including ESOLReading Intervention, Special Education: Generalist, and inservice master’s degree programs in Curriculum and Instruction and Special Education, and a Teacher Leadership for Equity and Social Justice Certificate.

Career Support

We offer a wide variety of career and licensing services for graduate students and alumni. Our goal is to offer services and resources focused on your professional needs, including support for obtaining your teaching license. We also run a New Teacher Conversations program to help new teachers adjust to life in the classroom.
