About the Program

The mission of the Teacher Education Program of Great Basin College is to provide a distinctive early childhood, elementary, secondary, and special education program for rural Nevada.

The Teacher Education Program is designed to develop competence, values, skills, and knowledge to promote lifelong learning and is distinctive in the following ways:

  • We recognize and value diversity in the heritage and traditions of the region;

  • We collaborate with the rural school districts and early childhood programs in the region to offer early and extensive clinical and field experiences throughout the programs;

  • We utilize the professional expertise and contributions of faculty and staff in all academic disciplines and

  • We utilize technology for distance education and delivering education courses in rural areas.

When you graduate from the Great Basin College Teacher Education Program, you will be prepared for certification by the Nevada Department of Education.

You will have the flexibility to choose from several emphases or endorsements. You may find your strengths and interests lay in English, mathematics, social studies, or science.
