In 1939, Shippensburg State Teachers College became the first teachers college in Pennsylvania and the fourth in the United States to be accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and (Secondary) Schools.  Today, Shippensburg University continues the deep rooted tradition of preparing exceptional teachers.

The College of Education and Human Services proudly offers a Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) approved and nationally accredited Teacher Preparation Program.  It is the responsibility of this program to ensure that all Candidates remain on track to meet the requirements of their program and ultimately are eligible for licensure upon program completion. 

The Teacher Preparation Program is framed by the many rules regulated by PDE to ensure our educators are prepared, competent, and confident.
