The College of Education, Health and Human Performance provides new students with numerous opportunities to make early connections to their major field of interest prior to the start of the first semester. To gain knowledge of the complex path to becoming a teacher educator, ALL PRE-ELEMENTARY AND PRE-SECONDARY TEACHER EDUCATION CANDIDATES ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO:
- Select an EDUCATION-SPECIFIC summer orientation date from the list of dates provided by the Fairmont State Recruitment Office. These special dates provide students with an opportunity to meet with and receive course selection advisement from School of Education, Health and Human Performance faculty members and/or administrators.
- Attend the COLLEGE OF EDUCATION, HEALTH AND HUMAN PERFORMANCE PRE-FALL ORIENTATION to be held on Friday of Welcome Weekend. The specific date for this event can be located on the Fairmont State homepage under the academic calendar.
*Note: Secondary Education majors have two academic colleges that relate to their major. For example, art education majors have an academic home in the Department of Architecture, Art and Design and the College of Education, Health and Human Performance. In order to keep informed on issues related to becoming a certified teacher educator, Pre-Secondary Education majors should attend the above events hosted by the College of Education, Health and Human Performance NOT their specialization area.
