Most student teachers in the Union College education program do their semester of student teaching the spring, so they don't get to experience what it's like to start a new school year. The new "Presession" program allows students to spend two weeks in a school, a week preparing for the first day, and then the first week of classes.
Learn how to give the gift of knowledge to others. Come to Union College, where teachers have been taught since 1891.
The Union College teacher preparation program seeks to prepare developers of human potential who demonstrate academic excellence, healthful living, professional practice, spiritual and social caring in their own lives, and who are committed to fostering such growth in the lives of their students.
This is accomplished through general education courses which provide a solid foundation in liberal arts; specialized courses that provide an understanding of knowledge and structure in the academic disciplines; health and physical education courses that encourage healthful living; and Bible courses that foster spiritual growth, teach the value of every individual and promote commitment to service.
