Welcome to the Educational Professions Department at Frostburg State University. Teacher Education programs at Frostburg State University have long enjoyed a reputation for excellence. The programs augment classroom components by extensive field and laboratory experiences which include observation, assisting, and videotaping with peers and school age children. A measure of the reputation of this department is witnessed by the number of its graduates that hold teaching and administrative positions within the state of Maryland and the surrounding states.
The teacher education programs are committed to preparing professionals who are able to provide quality instruction, service, and leadership in a global community. The conceptual framework upon which each program rests focuses on the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to develop powerful learning communities. The university, the public schools, parents, and other community members link together using their hands, heads, and hearts to prepare the finest pre-service teacher candidates. Educational Professions' graduates are expected to be dedicated professionals, instructional leaders, continuous assessors, educational advocates, collaborative bridge-builders, and reflective decision-makers.
