Professional Education Services
Welcome to Professional Education Services! Our offices provide ongoing support for candidates as they transition through various graduate and undergraduate programs aimed at becoming highly-qualified educators. Spanning a wide range of time and experiences, from freshman orientation to recommendation for certification, the information we offer will undoubtedly be accessed at varying points as it applies to particular programs, their candidates, and the supervisors who mentor those candidates.
As you explore our various areas of service, you will notice that Eastern Kentucky University’s clinical experiences are paired with courses offered through the College of Education. This intentional integration is aligned with professional standards and practices that have been shown to prepare exceptional educators. Other critical components of education programs that are supported by our office include admittance to professional education, student teaching, graduation, and teacher certification. We have provided multiple resources, organized around each of these key areas, to guide you and answer questions you may have.
However, if questions remain, reach out to us, as we are here to help.
