Undergraduate Professional Education Program

Page address:

Welcome! The Educational Studies: K-12 and Secondary Programs department's Undergraduate Programs area prepares students for initial licensure as a professional educator in a K-12 or a 5-12 classroom.

If you are interested in any of these teaching programs, this is the place for you! Our undergraduate program helps teacher candidates gain the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to function effectively in diverse educational settings.

We would love to talk with you. Please review the information on our Web pages and contact Carrie Chapman at or 507-389-5210 for more information or to be placed in touch with an undergraduate program advisor.
