All undergraduate students accepted to Pace who have designated an interest in either the Childhood or Adolescent Education programs are called Pre-Teach students. During the Pre-Teach phase, students take the following required courses:
Before students progress to the Teach phase of the program, they must apply for admission to the School of Education during the second semester of their sophomore year. Once the student has progressed to the Teach phase of the program, they become a teaching candidate.
Candidates who progress to the Teach phase of the program are required to remain in good academic standing (overall QPA of 3.0, grade of B or better in education courses, and QPA of 3.0 in academic major/concentration courses). In addition, candidates are expected to exhibit professional behaviors and dispositions both in and out of the classroom. The School of Education believes that all future teachers should take their academic experience seriously. To assist with student success, we offer a variety of academic support services.
