About Us

Duke's Program in Education offers a Minor in Education.  Service-learning and field experiences are a foundation of all our programs. For undergraduates interested in pursuing a teaching license, we offer several initial teacher preparation programs:

  • Elementary (Grades K-6)
  • Secondary (Grades 9-12 in English, Social Studies, Science, or Mathematics)

At the graduate level, we offer a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) for those interested in pursuing initial licensure at the high school level.

All of Duke's initial teacher licensure programs are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI).

For In-Service Teachers, we offer a non-degree Academically/Intellectually Gifted (AIG) add-on licensure program.

Duke's Program in Education is also home to the International Center for Service-Learning in Teacher Education, an international consortium of university education programs, and the Duke TeachHouse, a living and learning community for students in our teacher preparation programs.
