Hunter College has two undergraduate teacher education programs.

ADOLESCENT EDUCATION is for students who wish to become middle or high school teachers of a particular subject (grades 7-12).
PRE K - 12 PROGRAMS - The Dance Education program is for students who wish to become dance teachers in grades pre K to 12.
Both programs require that students apply after they have been accepted to Hunter. The application process involves a paper application, a writing sample and an interview. Students must apply by November 1 for the spring term and by April 1 for the fall term. Applications are available in the School of Education, Room 1000 West.
