Accreditation

The teacher preparation programs at Salisbury University are fully accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE). Additionally, the Early Childhood and double major in Early Childhood and Elementary programs are accredited by the National Association of Education for Young Children (NAEYC).

These combined accreditations provide substantial validation of the merits of each program. Requirements include preparation in a broad range of liberal arts, sciences, and math, field experiences integrated with methodology, a minor program of study in a content area, and a final yearlong internship in a Professional Development School.

In addition to the accrediting agencies and specialty area associations mentioned above, and in accordance with Title II of the Higher Education Act of 1998, Praxis II pass rates are published and updated yearly. (Title II) Salisbury University teacher candidates have consistently scored at or above the state average in recent years.
