Non-licensure: A student has an option of completing any of the baccalaureate degrees non-licensure with permission of the Director of Teacher Education. Students who opt for the 5th year residency will graduate with a BS/BA in education, non-licensure. The 8th semester (EDU 4600 and student teaching) will be replaced with EDU 4855, EDU 4860, EDU 4850, and EDU 4880.

Teacher Education Program (licensure)

The goal of Trevecca Nazarene University's Teacher Education Program is the preparation of quality classroom teachers. The program is based on the conceptual framework of Knowing, Doing, Being.

A collaborative partnership with the schools and community provides teacher candidates with real-life applications of academic, pedagogic, and developmental experiences.

Program Design

A. Students can earn licensure recommendation from the University at the undergraduate level through two different programs.

  1. A bachelor's degree program which includes enhanced student teaching; or
  2. A post baccalaureate program for undergraduate credit offering initial licensure, add-on endorsement, or license renewal. Individuals seeking or holding a teaching permit or a transition teaching license may complete course requirements through the post baccalaureate program.

B. Licensure Areas

The Teacher Education Program at Trevecca offers licensure in the following areas of study:

The guidelines listed under all Education Programs do not constitute a contract between a Trevecca student and the University. The sole purpose is to provide regulations, course listings, and degree programs which are in effect at the time of publication. Because of recent or pending changes in state and/or national requirements, Trevecca reserves the right to add, modify, or withdraw courses at any time.

This culminating experience is conducted in the public schools under the guidance of a classroom teacher and a Trevecca faculty supervisor. Application and interviews for student teaching are conducted in the Spring term prior to the academic school year in which the teacher candidate plans to student teach.

To be admitted to student teaching, the teacher candidate must make application to the Office of Teacher Education by December 15 of the year prior to the expected student teaching. Once the teacher candidate's application is on file, an interview is scheduled with the Screening Committee. The Teacher Education Committee approves the candidate based on the screening committee's recommendation. Candidates will be notified in writing of their status (approval, conditional, hold, or deferred) for admission to Enhanced Student Teaching based on the following requirements. If there is evidence of weakness in any area which gives question to the candidate's ability to successfully complete the student teaching experience, then the candidate will be rescreened after a period of additional study.

  1. Read a variety of written texts with comprehension;
  2. Write clear scholarly reports which analyze and synthesize information from multiple sources;
