Welcome to the School of Education. Peru State College is a National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education accredited institution. As Dean of the School, I’d like to introduce you to the various programs that we have to offer.
Currently, the School of Education offers teacher certification programs in early childhood, elementary, middle grades and secondary education, including Special Education. A variety of teaching fields and subjects are available for you to consider.
Candidates who select Peru State College for their teacher education preparation will enjoy opportunities to integrate their course-based knowledge and skills with actual field-based experiences in area classrooms. Our experienced faculty will provide individual attention in advising and mentoring, model innovative instructional methods and assessment, and facilitate your development of reflective decision-making, effective communication, and technological fluency skills.
In addition to undergraduate programs for certification, Peru State College offers a Master of Science in Education with a major in Curriculum and Instruction. This program is available entirely online or through an online e-cohort that allows you to complete the entire program within a community of learners.
There are many exciting aspects to our programs at PSC. The faculty and staff are here to assist you in making your educational experience the most fulfilling and rewarding time in your professional learning experience. On behalf of the School, I welcome you and invite you to call the main campus Monday-Friday, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., 1-800-742-4412, extension 2244, or stop in for additional information in T.J. Majors Hall, Room 207- School of Education.
I hope that the School of Education at PSC can assist you in your development as a reflective practitioner. If you’re considering the teaching profession and desire a supportive environment, or are already a teacher and want to enhance your knowledge and skills, Peru State College is the choice for you.
