Become a Teacher at EMU


Change the world, become a teacher. At EMU in Harrisonburg, Virginia we prepare students to be the very best educators. Students are in the classroom in the first five weeks of class, getting practical, hands-on experiences and learning the art and craft of teaching right from the start. You will learn to become a reflective educator, asking yourself "How can I engage my students more effectively? How can I make this lesson better?" 

EMU emphasizes the importance of being adaptable and engaging in a growth mindset. We prepare students to continue to evolve to meet the different and changing needs of students and the differing roles and responsibilities of teachers.

Our teacher education program has carried the highest national accreditation standards in the nation for more than 40 years. EMU is one of only five private colleges in Virginia to be NCATE-certified.
