About Our Teacher Preparation Programs

Duke's Program in Education is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. Our small class size creates a highly personalized learning environment for our students. We offer several options for teacher certification:

  • CAEP Accreditation: The Program in Education at Duke University is hosting an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) on November 4-6, 2018. Interested parties are invited to submit third-party comments to the site team.
  • For Undergraduates: We offer a Minor in Education, and two teacher preparation programs (Elementary and Secondary Education) that lead to licensure in North Carolina and beyond. Service learning and field experiences are a foundation of all our programs.
  • For Graduate Students: We offer a year-long Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree that explores the most exciting and challenging questions in education research and practice.
  • For In-Service Teachers: We offer a non-degree Academically/Intellectually Gifted add-on licensure program.
