Northern Arizona University offers teacher education programs that are nationally accredited through the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Candidates engage in demanding, hands-on coursework, performance assessments and innovative teaching methods.
NAU offers nationally recognized professional education programs for teacher certification at the early childhood, elementary, and secondary levels, as well as in special education. NAU also offers advanced education programs along with nationally recognized or accredited certification programs for principals, superintendents, school counselors, and school psychologists.
Northern Arizona University partners with CAEP and Specialized Professional Associations to make a difference in the quality of teaching and teacher preparation today, tomorrow, and for the next century. CAEP’s performance-based system of accreditation fosters competent classroom teachers and other educators who work to improve the education of all P-12 students. Our education faculty members believe every student deserves a caring, competent, and highly qualified teacher.
