Teacher Education

Teacher Education

Southeastern Oklahoma State University first opened its doors to students in June, 1909, as a normal school. The University has evolved from a two-year college to a four-year institution offering graduate degrees in education. Over 100 years have passed, and Southeastern is still known as a teachers’ college.

Teacher Education continues to be one of the major undergraduate programs at Southeastern. All Teacher Education Programs are accredited by the Council for Educator Preparation (CAEP) and approved by the State of Oklahoma Office of Educational Quality and Accountability (OEQA).

The Teacher Education Program’s theme is: “Professionals for the 21st Century: Competent, Committed and Ethical.” The Teacher Education Program at Southeastern is dedicated to producing competent, committed and ethical educators who successfully work with diverse students. A professional for the 21st century is prepared to effectively utilize technology in teaching, counseling, administering and leading in P-12 schools

Special note: The Teacher Education Services Office will be closed for walk-in business on March 2, 9, 16 and April 6 & 13 to facilitate our staff’s preparation for new Chalk and Wire capabilities coming this fall.  Applications for teacher education or student teaching may be submitted in the locked box next to the TES office door (Morrison 106). If you need assistance, please see Dr. Mayers in Morrison 218. Thank you!
