Teacher Education at KWC
If you are searching for a challenging career that will allow you to make a significant impact on people and the future of society, then you’ve come to the right place!
Based on the realization that tomorrow's hope lies with today's teachers, the Kentucky Wesleyan Teacher Education program provides experiences designed to develop teacher-leaders capable of facing a diverse, ever-changing world.
Service begins early in the teacher education experience, and although you are required to complete 90-154 hours of field and clinical experiences depending on your major and area of emphasis, many students far exceed this requirement in their service to local schools and youth organizations.
