Help students overcome obstacles in learning and find innovative ways to inspire them by becoming a teacher through the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
For many students, the idea of becoming a teacher is more than just a career choice–it is a calling. The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point was founded in 1894 as the Stevens Point Normal School, whose primary purpose was to prepare future teachers. Today, teacher preparation remains an integral part of our mission and we continue to be at the forefront of innovation in our field.
Our programs provide students with frequent opportunities for hands-on learning in K-12 classrooms. Beginning with practicum experiences all the way through student teaching, our teacher candidates are able to practice and refine their knowledge and skills under the supervision and guidance of cooperating teachers and our own faculty who have dedicated their careers to education and a lifetime of student learning.

For the second year in a row, the education program at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point has been ranked second in the nation according to Study.com.
Through many School of Education centers and programs, our students may observe the development process in young children and then apply principles discussed in teaching method classes to real life situations.
