Education

Get out of your classes—and into a classroom!

As a teacher education major at Champlain, you'll be spending time in a local school beginning in your first year. This early experience gives you a head start in building the skills and experience to launch your teaching career with confidence.

The first-year exploration provided by our Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to ensure you're on the right path. By working with various age groups and populations early on, you'll discover where your strengths and interests are—and will have more time to further develop your interests while you're in college. 

When you declare your major, you'll choose a focus from the options below. 

An Educational Technology specialization is available to all Education majors, and a Literature specialization is open to Education majors who are not choosing an English Language Arts endorsement. 

*Endorsement pending final approval of the Vermont Agency of Education.
