Messiah University Teacher Education Program

We are happy that you are considering teacher education at Messiah University! 

The Teacher Education Program (TEP) manages the requirements for students in all teacher certification programs across the university.  TEP also arranges and manages the required field experiences that students participate in as part of their coursework toward earning a degree with teacher certification. TEP is responsible for assuring that students in these majors meet Pennsylvania certification requirements.

Our Mission Statement will tell you more about our goals for the education of teacher certification students at Messiah University. To find out more about the certifications available at Messiah University, please see Our Teacher Certification Programs.

Please look at the Distinctives of Messiah's Teacher Education Program to see what sets our program apart from other teacher preparation programs.

Hear what our graduates have to say about the program:
