DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

Our renowned Education Department is one of the largest on campus and is highly decorated, as three alumni in the last decade have been named Tennessee Teacher of the Year! From a world-class education to professors that promote a Christ-like, family atmosphere, junior Emma Denton will give you a glimpse into our lovely C-N Education Department!

OVERVIEW + PROGRAMS

Carson-Newman education graduates are highly sought after because of our strong reputation for developing excellent teachers, counselors and administrators called to lifelong leadership, learning and service. During your time at C-N, you’ll be part of a department with a distinctive sense of camaraderie and shared purpose. Faculty are not only outstanding academicians but also talented teachers with extensive experience in K–12 settings (because they are not just classroom teachers).

DID YOU KNOW?

Facilities for the Department of Education offer a curriculum lab, a children’s literature collection and a convenient computer lab. Our classrooms also include interactive white boards.

Accreditation

Carson-Newman is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), and its teacher licensure programs are approved by the Tennessee State Board of Education. Satisfactory completion of the Teacher Education Program with an approved subject area fulfills Tennessee licensure requirements, and the TN license is easily convertible to other states. Anyone desiring licensure in other states should check the licensure requirements of those particular states.
