Discover what Wilson has to offer


A student-focused, educational experience.

In keeping with the Wilson College mission as an independent liberal arts college, the Department of Teacher Education enhances those qualities that result from a liberal education by linking strong academic content with best educational theory, research, and practice.

In preparing successful candidates for Pennsylvania K-12 certification, our Department of Teacher Education faculty not only builds close communities of students through collaborative learning in small classes but also builds partnerships with school communities through collegial dialogue, staff development opportunities, and interactive field experiences. We provide thorough, individualized advising to accommodate the diverse needs of students from the undergraduate program (both bachelor's and associate's degrees) and the Teacher Intern Program. The Teacher Education program serves as a resource for both the college community and the community at large to model innovative educational practices that result in the highest standards of teaching
