Welcome from Interim-Department Head
Jane Carlson


Welcome to the Department of Education!

Being part of the Department of Education at UMD means you are part of our community. Together we create an environment conducive for learning how to become professional educators. The department prepares teachers for licensure in Birth to Grade 12 (E-12) settings.

Our website is designed to assist you and provide the basic information on how to successfully obtain a degree in education, whether at the undergraduate level, graduate level, post-bac or certification program.  While the website is designed to be comprehensive and does provide a wide array of information, we realize that the human touch can never fully be replaced and so we encourage you to contact us personally through the programs website.
