Cappex is proud to be Your College Decision Headquarters™. Choosing your major is not only a big part of finding your dream college, but it’s also a choice that can define your career and even the rest of your life.
If you’re interested in becoming an education major, the National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) has some valuable information for you! Check out the NCTQ’s Teacher Prep Review. The Review has the comprehensive information you need to pick the education program that will provide you with the training to make you a confident and effective teacher from day one. NCTQ looks at what matters most in teacher preparation: whether candidates master the subjects they will teach, whether candidates get trained in using specific pedagogical skills, such as teaching kids how to read, and whether they get a high-quality student teaching experience with an effective mentor teacher.
Published in partnership with U.S. News & World Report, the Teacher Prep Review looks at elementary, secondary, and special education programs at 1,127 colleges and universities around the country. Look through the country’s Top Ranked elementary and secondary programs. Find the right program in your state or even closer to home. The Review is your guide to the best of teacher prep.
