Types of Teachers

Eastern Michigan University prepares caring, professional educators for a diverse and democratic society (CPED2S). We prepare teachers who care about children and who are dedicated to meeting the needs of all children.

EMU's professional education courses are designed around the CPED2S program theme. You may read more about the theme in the introductory handbook for teacher preparation programs (pdf).

EMU has programs to prepare teachers in elementary education, special education, and many different subject areas at the secondary level.


Education students, who qualify, can also enter the Honors College.
