Graduates from UE's School of Education leave the program, which can be completed in four years, with the skills they need to succeed as teachers - so much so that, in 2015-16, 100% of UE School of Education graduates who pursued employment in the field of education were working in the field or enrolled in graduate school.
Because of their educational foundation and supportive relationships with faculty, our graduates are achieving personal and professional success. In 2015-16, 100% of UE School of Education graduates who pursued employment in the field of education were working in the field or enrolled in graduate school. Many of our graduates choose to work in inner-city schools, as they have the confidence and skill to do so. By graduation, all education students have had experience in Title I schools; many have had as much as 4 to 5 different school/community experiences. Our graduates also report they are working - and flourishing - in a highly diverse student and teacher population.
Graduates of the University of Evansville School of Education are known for their skills and knowledge as well as for their compelling attitudes and dedication to the children of this nation. Indeed, many School of Education graduates have employment offers prior to graduation. There are several key reasons for this: first, our students participate in a wide variety of meaningful experiences in schools and school communities, working closely with teachers, families, and administrators. These experiences allow our students to build the skillsets needed to grow into caring and effective educators while benefitting from established support systems as they learn.
Second, our graduates are generally very culturally competent, again, largely due to the way our coursework and their school field experiences work together. Our graduates understand and value the many differences found in today’s schools.
