Office of Teacher Education

Welcome to the Office of Teacher Education! Our office is committed to fostering strong school partnerships throughout Northwest Arkansas and beyond, and to helping U of A education students navigate the path to teacher certification.

The Office of Teacher Education at the University of Arkansas secures schools to be utilized for undergraduate observation, places student teaching interns, and maintains partnership with local schools. Field experience is an essential component of our teacher education programs. The office places more than 1,000 students in nearly 20 school districts every year, and also serves as the central source of information on Arkansas educator licensure requirements and regulations for U of A students and constituents.
