School of Education Accreditation TEAC (CAEP)*

Stockton's Teacher Education program prepares novice teachers to be competent in both subject matter and pedagogical skills, as well as to be caring practitioners in diverse and technologically rich learning environments.

Stockton's Master of Arts in Education (MAED) program is designed to deepen professional knowledge, develop and deliver instruction, and demonstrate caring through reflective and equitable practices.  The MAED program is accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) for a period of seven years, from 2013 to 2020.  This accreditation certifies that the Master of Arts in Education program has provided evidence that it adheres to TEAC's quality principles. 

*As CAEP increasingly becomes the recognized name in accreditation of educator preparation, transitional language will be provided to continue to indicate TEAC accreditation, while linking the former entities to CAEP as the new sole accreditor for educator preparation.
