Welcome to UNI Teacher Education

Professional Education Sequence

The Professional Education Sequence for the UNI Teacher Education Program consists of all coursework designed to provide teacher candidates with the theoretical and foundational knowledge necessary for the teaching profession.  Along with these courses, the Professional Education Sequence includes the four different levels of field experience required by the UNI Teacher Education Program.  This allows teacher candidates the opportunity to apply the knowledge and concepts they learn in their on-campus courses to working with P-12 grade students in our partner schools.

Below is a listing of all Professional Education Sequence courses required by the UNI Teacher Education Program.  Please note, a passing grade for each of the Professional Education Sequence course is set at a C- or higher.
