About the Program

Culver-Stockton has been preparing teachers for more than 100 years through a combination of strong academics and hands-on experience. Our curriculum helps students learn how to think critically, analyze real problems and apply solutions in a real-world environment. Students learn from experts, faculty, alumni and C-SC friends who have spent much of their careers as educators. They teach our students what they have learned and help get them on the right track to success. Our curriculum allows students to experience what it is like to work in the classroom from their freshmen year until their student teaching experience.

What Makes the Program Distinctive?

Students acquire the knowledge to create an effective learning environment by gaining hands-on classroom teaching experience in a simulated classroom with area school children, participating in professional conferences and developing and delivering formal lessons. Students learn innovative teaching methods, observe classroom in action, develop proficiency in educational technology and 
gain teaching experience.
