College of Education


The College of Education at Northeastern State University is proud to prepare educators, psychologists, and fitness/health professionals to serve Oklahoma and the entire nation. Whether your career goals center around teaching in public schools, working with those seeking healthier physical and mental lifestyles, or attending graduate college for advanced preparation, the College of Education wants to help you reach your dreams.

Our heritage of service and excellence dates back to the Cherokee National Female Seminary founded in 1846. Our faculty focus on preparing professionals who are teaching scholars, educational leaders, and developers of human potential. Our teacher candidates and other graduates are committed to excellence in their fields and making a difference in their communities.

The College of Education offers programs at the Tahlequah, Muskogee, and Broken Arrow campuses.  Six undergraduate degrees, nine graduate degrees, and four certifications are available. All education programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and at the state level, by the Office of Educational Quality and Accountability (OEQA). All other professional programs are aligned with national standards.
