Teacher Education faculty strive to be superior teachers and are advocates of personalized learning. Students' course work and field placements are complemented by diverse experiences that include numerous opportunities for travel and study abroad. Field placements and student teaching opportunities are augmented by two on-campus laboratory schools: a child development center (3-4 year olds) and an elementary and middle school (K-8); Berry College also partners with Rome City Schools and the South Rome Alliance to operate an early learning center in South Rome (3 year olds).
Teacher Education also supports two minors (Teaching English as a Foreign Language - TEFL) and Family Studies; teacher education offers an ESOL endorsement to students' existing Georgia teaching certificate.
