Completer placement across Tennessee

Situated in northeast Tennessee, East Tennessee State University is a state-supported institution with a student population of over 14,000 including undergraduate and graduate. The majority of students are from Tennessee and the surrounding southeastern region of the US; over 48 states and territories as well as 76 foreign countries are also represented. The institution was established in 1911 as the East Tennessee State Normal School and became East Tennessee State Teachers College in 1925. This long history of preparing teachers for the classroom continues today with programs offered online, at the main Johnson City campus and in Kingsport, Sevierville, and Morristown. The Clemmer College offers 39 teacher licensure programs as well as undergraduate and graduate degrees in the departments of Human Services and Counseling; Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis; Sport, Exercise, Recreation, and Kinesiology; Curriculum and Instruction; Educational Foundations and Special Education; and Early Childhood Education. Students in teacher education programs are immersed in P-12 classrooms throughout their four-year college experience and complete a year-long clinical residency in public school classrooms. Each teacher candidate seeking initial licensure as a teacher in Tennessee completes a performance-based subject-specific assessment that measures skills and knowledge that all teachers must master in order to be effective.
