Dean's Greeting

Welcome to the School of Education at Fayetteville State University, where we have maintained continued accreditation from the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) since 1954. In fact, the university began its proud history as a teacher’s college. Our commitment is to prepare highly qualified teachers and other school personnel through the development, administration, supervision, and evaluation of the programs we offer. The School of Education is home to three departments: Educational Leadership; Elementary Education; and Middle Grades, Secondary, and Specialized Subjects. The 10 BS, 6 M. Ed., the MSA, and the Ed. D programs offered in these departments are designed to prepare professionals who are scholars and facilitators of learning. All teacher education programs are approved by the North Carolina State Board of Education. <Read More>
