Completer placement across Tennessee

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville is a public, four-year institution of higher education in the University of Tennessee system. The University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. The Graduate School of Education within the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences provides oversight and coordination of teacher licensure programs for the University. All of our professional licensure programs are approved by the Tennessee State Department of Education and nationally accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation based upon NCATE standards. Although undergraduate and post-baccalaureate programs are offered in some areas, most initial licensure options are designed as five-year programs that include a content-based major, an education minor, and a year-long graduate-level full-time internship with an approved mentor teacher in one of our partnership schools.
