Go Beyond the Lesson Plan

Our children’s time in the classroom echoes throughout every aspect of their lives. It is our shared responsibility to provide strong role models in schools – and that starts with offering you a lesson in growth. To break barriers. To open minds once closed. During a time when teacher shortage has reached crisis levels, the need to reach students from every background has never been greater.

That’s why our duty is, and always will be, to prepare competent, confident, and conscientious educational leaders who will promote and empower personal growth, academic success, and professional achievement for all.

Extensive Credential Programs

We prepare students to become top-notch educators. This includes not only providing our students a means of receiving their legally-required credentials, but offering you a wide range of supplemental certifications to widen your knowledge base. Whether you are taking on CTC-approved teaching or special education credentials, tackling a Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) credential, or bridging the language gap with TESOL, Alliant can help you advance your educational horizons beyond the lesson plan.

Focus on Diversity

Not every important lesson in life is taught in the classroom. But we fill our classes with ways to expose you to cultural experiences outside your own. And we ensure that your practica training opportunities expose you to a diverse array of environments so you learn how to be the guide that every student needs, no matter where they come from.

Learning Can’t Wait. Now Your Degree Doesn’t Have to Either.

For those who need to finish their bachelor’s degree, the quickest route to an Alliant graduate education degree is the Fast-Track option. This lets you spend the last semester of your bachelor’s program taking “bridge classes.” These graduate-level courses count toward both the completion of your undergraduate degree and either a credential or a master’s degree.
