Completer placement across Tennessee

Established as one of Tennessee’s original Normal Schools in 1911, MTSU was founded for the purpose of preparing teachers. Today, preparing future teachers, counselors, and school leaders is still central to the mission of the College of Education by offering students a course of study that focuses on research, best practices, strong content knowledge, and clinical experiences. MTSU’s rich history in teacher preparation continues through such exceptional programs as Ready2Teach; Ed.D in Assessment, Learning, & School Improvement; Ph.D Literacy Studies; Center for the Study & Treatment of Dyslexia; Center for Counseling & Psychological Services; Center for Educational Media; and three on-campus Early Childhood lab programs serving young children. Collaborative partnerships with 43 school districts support program design, clinical experiences, and pre-service development, enabling MTSU teacher candidates to positively impact student performance on the first day they enter the classroom.
