Welcome to the School of Education

The School of Education (SOE) supports a Teacher Preparation Program. The School is dedicated to enhancing the quality of education in the CNMI by providing the baccalaureate degree in Elementary Education. In addition, the SOE offers and is developing courses and certificate and endorsement programs in the areas of Elementary Education, Early Childhood Education, Special Education, Related Services, Early Intervention, Bilingual Education, Physical Education, Library Science, Reading, and Instructional Technology.

NMC now offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. The College was granted accreditation by the Senior Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in Spring 2001, and the 2001-2002 Academic Year was our first to offer this four-year degree. Thirty students completed their baccalaureate degrees and graduated from the program in Spring 2002.

The Teacher Preparation Program is supported by a Curriculum Resource Center (CRC). The CRC is used by mentors, master teachers, and teachers-in-training to examine, experiment with, and evaluate the latest in program-related curricular materials: books, videos, software, and manipulatives.
