AUNE has a long tradition of attracting and inspiring educators who think outside the box. Our Teacher Education Self-Designed Concentration builds an infrastructure through six core classes, but then allows you to meet your own personal goals by creating a unique program from courses throughout the department and University. Explore areas that you’re curious and passionate about in order to custom-tailor an educational experience that is personally designed to help you excel personally and professionally.
