Undergraduate Students

We offer many avenues of study that lead to satisfying and rewarding destinations in education. Our graduates say things like: “Teaching is a wonderful job! Each day is different; each year is different. You build on the experiences the kids bring.” ­ Todd Autenreith, elementary school teacher, UA graduate, and Arizona Teacher of the Year finalist

We have three undergraduate programs that lead to teacher certification:
