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.

Admission to the Teacher Education Program

Admission to the University does not constitute admission to the Teacher Education Program. Application for admission to the program should be submitted within three semesters of declaring an education major or in the first semester of study for transfer and post baccalaureate students. All students must pass a background check during EDU 1020 course or upon starting any education courses. Transfer and post-baccalaureate students seeking licensure must take at least twelve (12) semester hours in the Education Major and/or the Professional Core at Trevecca. All transfer students must submit verification of acceptable ACT/SAT scores to the Office of the School of Education during the first semester at Trevecca. All post-baccalaureate students must submit verification of acceptable ACT/SAT scores, or MAT or GRE if taken prior to admittance. If no scores are available, the student must complete the PPST with passing scores.

Requirements for Admission to Teacher Education

  5. Present passing scores on the Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST), mandated by the State of Tennessee. An ACT Composite score of 22 or SAT combined verbal and mathematics score of 1020 is acceptable as a substitute for passing PPST scores

Specific requirements and procedures are described in the Teacher Education Handbook.

Due Process

Students who have questions concerning action taken by the Teacher Education Committee have the right to appeal through the established due process procedure. An appeal must be in writing and follow the protocol listed below. If a decision is not acceptable to the student at any point, the appeal must be made in writing within 15 days to the next level. All appeals originate with the director of teacher education.

The decision of the Dean of the School of Education is final.

Admission to Student Teaching

All teacher candidates in the initial licensure Teacher Education Program at Trevecca must complete a semester (75 days) of enhanced student teaching which includes placements in two different school settings and at two different grades/grade levels. 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.

Requirements for Admission to Student Teaching

  1. Previous admission to the Teacher Education Program
  2. A cumulative GPA of 2.75 or better
  3. Complete Writing on Demand activity with a score of 10 or better with no zeroes
  4. Senior status, or the equivalent for post baccalaureate teacher candidates, and completion of a minimum of half the total hours of the Professional Education Core including the basic methods courses in the areas of specialization in which student teaching is to be done
  5. A minimum GPA of 2.8 in both the Professional Core and the Major area(s) and no more than one C-
  6. Completion and submission of an application form including a photograph
  7. Submission of acceptable scores on all the Praxis tests: Principles of Learning and Teaching and required specialty area tests as mandated by the state of Tennessee
  8. Interview with screening committee
  9. Music Education majors must pass the Keyboard Proficiency Exam or complete Class Piano I-IV with an average of B- or higher
  10. PE Education majors must meet the conditioning criteria of the Department of Exercise and Sport Science

Once approval of the teacher candidate's application has been granted, the Coordinator of Field Placement or designee, in conjunction with school-based personnel, will arrange placements.

If difficulty which causes sufficient doubt as to satisfactory completion of student teaching arises during the student teaching experience, an assessment interview will be called. Such an interview could lead to: 1) removal from student teaching; or 2) an additional student teaching experience; or 3) a decision not to recommend the teacher candidate for licensure.

Program Completer Requirements

Candidates are considered program completers when the following criteria are met.

Licensure Requirements

In order to be recommended for licensure, candidates must complete all requirements to become a program completer and submit the required licensure paperwork.

Post Baccalaureate Program

This program is organized to provide service for three different types of students:

Type 1. Students who hold a baccalaureate degree and wish to take classes leading to recommendation for initial teacher licensure. These students will NOT earn credits toward another degree;

Type 2. Students who want to add an additional area of endorsement to their current teacher license; or

Type 3. Students with teacher licensure who need coursework to satisfy requirements for renewal of their current teacher license or who want course work for professional development or personal enrichment.

General Information

Students who hold a Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university can attend Trevecca Nazarene University under the auspices of the Post Baccalaureate Office at a reduced tuition rate. Directed Study, available only to those enrolled in licensure programs, is charged regular University tuition plus directed study fee.

A transcript evaluation, showing a 2.5 GPA, is required prior to enrolling in any teacher licensure program. Any transfer courses considered for licensure must be approved. A transcript evaluation fee will be charged, which will be applied to the application fee if the student decides to enroll.

Post-baccalaureate students seeking licensure must take at least twelve (12) semester hours in the Education Major and/or the Professional Core at Trevecca. Post-baccalaureate students must submit verification of acceptable ACT/SAT scores, or MAT or GRE if taken prior to admittance. If no scores are available, the student must complete the PPST with passing scores.

International students may not enroll in education courses as post-baccalaureate students until all admissions procedures described under Admission of International Students in the Admissions section of this Catalog have been processed. One of the requirements is that applicants whose native language is not English must take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

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

Undergraduate and post-baccalaureate

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.

For the convenience of post-baccalaureate students, application for admission and academic advising take place in the Office of the School of Education.
