Teacher Education

Teacher Education

Teacher preparation programs are affiliated through the School of Education, housed in the College of Education, Health and Human Sciences. Candidates can prepare to become education professionals in technical or community college settings or in PK-12 school settings. The School of Education and its programs are accredited by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education. The School of Education serves as a resource center for students, schools and the general public. 

Information about the School of Education and specific teacher education programs, minors and other subprograms can be found online at the School of Education website.

Pre-education is the initial designation for students interested in becoming a licensed teacher in a PK-12 educational setting. The UW-Stout School of Education Assessment System is designed so that candidate progress is reviewed at various points called benchmarks.


Licensing agencies make periodic changes in requirements that may necessitate program changes. It is the student’s responsibility to make certain they have the most current information about Wisconsin requirements from their adviser or program director. Certification requirements vary by state. UW-Stout programs are designed to meet the requirements in Wisconsin only. Students contemplating teaching certifications in another state are responsible for understanding the requirements in the state for which they wish to seek a teaching license.
