Professional preparation of teachers is an interdisciplinary process at Greensboro College. Faculty from five of six divisions and departments work together to prepare new teachers.

Masters of Education programs in elementary education and special education general and adapted curriculum are also offered.
The education faculty have a reputation for expertise and innovation. Tenured faculty hold terminal degrees in their field and present regularly at national meetings and publish books and articles. Faculty are recognized, individually and collectively, for their teaching, research, and service to the Greensboro community.
Our graduates have good reputations, too. Many have been named "teacher of the year" and have achieved national board licensure status in their states and districts. Many serve in leadership roles in professional organizations and schools. Of our graduates, about two-thirds remain in North Carolina for their first year of teaching.
Our past gives us confidence that Greensboro College will continue a strong commitment to sound and innovative teacher preparation.
