EDUCATION PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The process of becoming a teacher requires both committing to helping students develop their full potential and mastering the techniques required to transfer knowledge to those we teach. Teachers impact all of us in profound ways, starting in elementary school and going through to the professional studies we pursue in adult settings.

Teaching in today’s diverse society requires interpersonal skills and wisdom that transcends cultural and linguistic barriers. Albizu University, with its historic focus on sensitivity to cultural and ethnic issues, offers you the opportunity to become a well-informed and skillful teacher.

The Education program at Albizu University, Miami campus, offers five degrees, including an online TESOL degree, and three certificates.
