Burton College of Education


Education opens the world for students and a teacher knows that learning never stops. We instill this value in our students so they may pass it on in their classrooms.

Students are prepared in general knowledge, professional education and specialty values. Through close interaction with faculty members, internships and student teaching opportunities, are students are prepared to fulfill their roles in the teaching profession as leaders who contribute to the cultural and intellectual advancement of their communities.
