The Teacher Education programs at the graduate level leading to initial teacher certification in Maine offers the Educational Studies Minor at the undergraduate level. The Teacher Education faculty is dedicated to ensuring that USM's teacher candidates have the knowledge, skills and dispositions to teach in the increasingly diverse and demanding schools of today. We are committed to providing our teacher candidates simultaneous classroom experiences and course work that help them connect the everyday work with students to the theories and research.
