At the undergraduate level, the department offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Education with a major in elementary education. In the area of secondary education, both the Bachelor of Arts in Education and the Bachelor of Science in Education degrees are available. Students interested in teaching at the secondary school level will select a subject area teaching major and earn the degree appropriate to the chosen major. Secondary education students are also required to select a teaching minor unless an extended major (e.g. social studies, extended English, physical education) is chosen. Prospective students should consult the Office of Student Services within the College of Education for more information, (520) 621-7865.  Endorsements in middle level teaching and bilingual education are also available for either elementary or secondary programs.

The College of Education also offers a post-baccalaureate teacher preparation program at both the elementary and secondary levels.  Individuals interested in teaching at the secondary level are encouraged to consult advisors in the academic department of their proposed teaching major for information about appropriate course work in that discipline.  For information about the professional elementary and secondary education course requirements, consult the Office of Student Services within the College of Education.

A fast-track, one-year master's degree leading to secondary certification is also offered in the Department of Teaching and Teacher Education.  This M.Ed. (Master of Education) program is designed in collaboration with seven Tucson-area school districts and offers an intensive field-based teacher preparation experience.

The department participates in the honors program.
