Education

Teacher education is a vital part of Meredith College. We have a proud history of educating women to be innovative teachers who lead and serve in the broader community. Meredith’s education programs ensure that our teachers will be knowledgeable, thoughtful, and prepared to meet the needs of all students.

Statement from the Department:
Students in our schools need and deserve antiracist teachers who are not afraid to teach, learn, and lead the way toward equitable schools and a just society.

Meredith undergraduate students complete a liberal arts major in the field of their choice and, at the same time, pursue a teaching license by completing a teacher education program in the Department of Education. Completion of the teacher education program, the major, and a general education program that is used to strengthen your overall knowledge as a classroom teacher, lead to a North Carolina teaching license.

By pursuing teacher licensure at Meredith, you’ll be transformed by a rigorous education that fosters leadership, promotes reflective practice, and cultivates passion for learning and the art of teaching.
