International Teacher Education Program (ITEP)
The Curriculum and Instruction Department offers initial teaching license programs approved by the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practice Commission. We also provide pathways toward Oregon Initial Licensure for candidates with bachelor's degrees and eligible teaching licenses from foreign countries. Qualified candidates can go through a highly individualized program at PSU to meet the Oregon Initial Teaching License requirements and be recommended for an Oregon initial license at appropriate levels.
In collaboration with faculty, the Field Placement Office, and the Educational Licensing Office, the International Teacher Education Program Coordinator provides one-on-one advising, designs an individualized program of study based on the match between the candidate's preparation and our TSPC approved program requirements, and supervises a field based clinical practicum. Please follow the links to the left to find more information about advising, application/admission, program of study, field practicum, scholarship/financial aid, related programs, and resources.
