Welcome from the Dean
Welcome to Shorter University’s School of Education. I am glad you have chosen to spend your time learning more about our education program offerings. The education faculty and staff are honored to be part of a Christian institution whose mission is to transform lives through Christ.
Reflecting the mission of Shorter, the Conceptual Framework of the School of Education establishes the foundation upon which Shorter prepares teachers to think Learners First. Our mission is to provide exemplary classroom and field experiences for its teacher candidates so that they may become successful teachers dedicated to life-long learning, personal growth, collaborative effort, responsible citizenship, and community leadership in a global context. Upon successful completion of the program, Shorter graduates are expected to possess content, pedagogical, and curricular knowledge, but more importantly, it is expected Shorter graduates will demonstrate the professional dispositions to be caring professionals who are concerned for the needs of others, and able to assist others effectively in the learning process.
As our mission is accomplished, our vision is met. Our vision is to continue what the program has done so successfully over the years which is:
Shorter University’s School of Education offers nine preparation programs, eight for initial teaching certification and one for advanced teaching certification.
The Post-Baccalaureate (certification only) programs provide individuals who hold an earned bachelor’s or higher degree, the skills, knowledge, and experience needed to begin a successful career as a teacher in one of the following fields:
Students seeking certification in one of these programs must demonstrate a sound knowledge of the discipline and an understanding of learning. The curriculum requires the equivalent of a major in the discipline.
