The mission of the Educator Preparation Program at Northland College is to provide an engaging, experiential education program focused on using social justice and environmental sustainability to prepare effective and reflective teachers.

 

The Northland College Educator Preparation Program is rooted in the belief that education has a vital role in creating a more just and sustainable world. We believe that a core purpose of schools is to help prepare students to be informed citizens and critical thinkers that understand and address the issues and injustices their communities face.  We prepare our teacher candidates to take up this work with integrity, perspective, and joy.

 

The Northland College Educator Preparation Program infuses its four commitments of environmental sustainability, social justice, engaged learning, and reflective practice into programmatic coursework and uses them to frame teacher candidates’ experiences to support their growth and development as future teachers. 

 

Each education major includes multiple school placements with experiences both in and out of classroom environments providing teachers candidates with broad perspective on teaching and learning.  Knowledgeable, experienced and attentive professors blend these classroom experiences with their coursework to help teacher candidates develop the versatility, confidence, and skills needed for the realities of teaching and for lifelong learning.  Successful graduates are certified by Northland College and earn licensure from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.

 

Students pursuing a degree in elementary or secondary education are encouraged to obtain a copy of the Educator Preparation Program Student Handbook of Policies, Procedures, and Forms for specific details on the requirements for both the academic majors and state licensure information.
