Department of Teaching and Educational Leadership

The Department of Teaching and Educational Leadership offers programs leading to a bachelor's degree and/or licensure in three areas: Elementary Education (Grades K-6), Middle Level Education, (Grade 4-8) and Secondary Education (The grade level preparation includes 7-12, 4-12, or K-12 depending on the secondary major field pursued). In addition to these bachelor's programs, the Department offers an associate's degree program in Early Childhood Education. 


Internship is the capstone of the teacher preparation program. Placements are the responsibility of the College of Education and Health and are selected on the basis of providing the best experience available for the teacher candidate.

The assignments require full day experiences for the semester. Teacher candidates should make plans with these requirements in mind.

All candidates for licensure must meet minimum scores as required by Arkansas Department of Education on the Principles of Learning and Teaching, if applicable and the appropriate specialty area test.

Please refer to “Requirements for Baccalaureate Degrees".
