Austin Peay's Education programs will give you the tools you need to be a world-class educator.
Our departments of Teaching and Learning and Educational Specialties offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs that will give you the training you need to be successful in our classroom and in yours. Our various Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) programs provide multiple avenues for career changers and college graduates in other disciplines to prepare themselves for their particular niche in the teaching profession. The Doctorate of Educational Leadership will prepare you for a variety of positions from state and district leadership roles to educational research careers.
The mission of the department of Educational Specialties is to prepare and support educational professionals in their development as effective practitioners.
In this department, you will have the opportunity to interact in classes with peers who are pursuing similar licenses and with instructors who have been classroom teachers, principals, and curriculum supervisors. All of our professional educators have had extensive classroom teaching experience.
Any concerts I have played, both ensemble and solo, will always be experiences I will remember as I continue towards the end of my degree program at Austin Peay.
I want to encourage others to excel, that come from other countries and believe that learning and the curriculum at Austin Peay is difficult. They can do it and it can be done.
Everything about my story is tied to music: it’s my passion, it’s my love, it’s going to be my job — It’s everything to me.
Without Austin Peay's programs, I wouldn't have found my passion for teaching children, or seen the joy a child experiences when they learn how to sing or play an instrument.
