Iowa's Premier Teacher Education Program 

The University of Northern Iowa is highly respected as a premier teacher education program. For more than 140 years, UNI has been a leader in pre-K through 12 education. UNI graduates more than 450 teacher education students each year -- joining the 17,000 plus UNI alumni educators throughout the world. UNI's teacher education program includes early childhood, elementary, middle and high school school programs, with a variety of majors including mathematics, science, English, art and music to name a few.

One of the key strengths of UNI's teacher education program is the hands-on learning students experience in real world classrooms, giving students diverse opportunities in both urban and rural schools. UNI professors lead and partner with many state and national education programs addressing teacher effectiveness and student learning, allowing our students an opportunity to engage in innovative research and teaching practices.
