English Education at UNCG intends to prepare teachers who are broad in their thinking, well versed in their discipline, informed in theory as well as practice, concerned about diversity and community, and reflective in their ongoing professional growth.
The U.S. Department of Education requires that all higher education institutions advise students as to whether their curriculum provides them with the eligibility to apply for a professional license and/or certification in the state for which they plan to practice.
As such, please review UNC Greensboro’s status by state for the Elementary Education program. You should note whether the program either “meets”, “does not meet”, or if there “has not been a determination” of the program’s status in the state for which you plan to practice. You should contact the program’s support staff at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding this data.
