Division of Teacher Education

The purposes of The Division of Teacher Education program are to prepare the teacher candidate to function as professional teacher and to aid the teacher candidate in developing the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to assist school children in reaching their potential.

The Teacher Education Program at Oklahoma Baptist University is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation, CAEP. In addition, all education programs, such as elementary education, special education, secondary math education, and early childhood education, are individually accredited through their Special Professional Associations, SPAS.  OBU has produced 49 completers who have met the requirements for National Board Certification.
