East Tennessee State University

Contact information

Situated in northeast Tennessee, East Tennessee State University is a state-supported institution with a student population of 14,000 including undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. The majority of students are from Tennessee and the surrounding southeastern region of the U.S.; all 50 states as well as 71 foreign countries are also represented. The institution was chartered in 1909 as 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 and Sevierville. The Clemmer College of Education and Human Development offers 34 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 PreK-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.
