Knowledge is key to turning students into teachers. So is experience. At Northern, you’ll receive training and hands-on experience using the latest in classroom technology. High-quality instruction is coupled with hands-on opportunities for internships, lab experiences and service to the community.

​The School of Education also partners with the nearby South Dakota School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (SDSBVI ) for numerous educational opportunities. This unique partnership will expand even further thanks to the Educational Impact Campaign, resulting in projects including a brand-new SDSBVI facility. Read more here!
