Education Programs at Lyndon

As the longest running academic program at Lyndon, the Education Department has been a leader in teaching teachers for 100 years. With a faculty of experts in the fields of elementary education, early childhood education, and special education—along with first-rate student-teaching internships—our program guarantees tomorrow’s teachers a thorough, hands-on, and attentive apprenticeship.

What makes Lyndon’s Education program unique? Lyndon students spend significant time in actual classrooms in their sophomore year, a full two years earlier than in most other programs. Elementary and Special Education candidates have a total of 369 hours of field experience prior to student teaching. For early childhood educators, that total goes up to 509 hours.

There are many different educational pathways available to students at different stages of their career, from the first year of college, to professional development opportunities in mid- to late-career. Working closely with their advisors, students are able to determine where their true passion in teaching resides and what steps they need to take to get there.

Lyndon’s teacher preparation programs have been granted program approval by the Vermont State Board of Education. Currently, Vermont Teaching Licenses are accepted reciprocally by 29 other states.

Graduates from our Education Program enjoy rewarding careers as teachers. Our 2012 Graduate Survey Report indicated a 100 percent job placement rate.
