Iowa's Premier Teacher Education Program
The University of Northern Iowa is highly respected as a premier teacher education program. For nearly 150 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 majors leading to early childhood, elementary, middle and high school level teaching, including elementary education, mathematics, science, English, art, physical education 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, suburban 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.
