Applying to a teacher education program is the first step in an exciting journey of becoming a teacher. Our Elementary Teacher Education (ETE) bachelor degree and Honors bachelor degree are designed to prepare you for your first classroom and to become an effective and innovative teacher.

There is much to consider in choosing the right university for you. Since teacher education programs can vary, we have provided and informational flyer on our program and a list of our top ten reasons for choosing the ETE program at the University of Delaware. We also would be happy to talk with you so that you can make an informed decision about where to apply and to choose to attend college.

Information about the application process for high school students or students who are currently attending another institution is available online. Current UD students who are interested in switching to the Elementary Teacher Education major can gain the information needed to do this online.
