Curriculum and Instruction Career Paths
I want to earn a doctorate:
Specializations include: administration; educational leadership; post secondary, adult, and continuing education; curriculum and instruction; and special and counselor education.
I want to be an elementary, middle school or high school classroom teacher:
The Graduate Teacher Education Program (GTEP) prepares classroom teachers for early childhood (pre-grade 4), elementary (grades 3-8), middle school (grades 5-10) and/or high school (grades 7-12) authorizations. Successful completion of this program culminates in a recommendation to the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission for an initial teaching license, and the option of completing a master's of education degree.
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers "Pre Education" options which help students meet the prerequisite requirements for our teacher licensure programs.
Child and Family Studies also offers a program that includes prerequisite course for the GTEP program.
I have a teaching license from another country and would like to teach in Oregon:
The International Teacher Education Program provides advising and coursework for individuals who have a teaching license from another country to transition to an Initial Teaching License in the State of Oregon.
