Who We Are

The Teacher Education department at United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck, North Dakota is dedicated to making a quality education a reality for every student in the United States, specifically those from culturally, linguistically and ability diverse backgrounds. The professional educators who graduate from our programs exemplify the unit’s conceptual framework as “competent, caring teachers”.

As a student in Teacher Education at UTTC, students will encounter a rigorous academic environment energized by a dedication to creating brighter futures for all – both learners and educators. We take pride in our innovative research-based programs, the emphasis throughout the program on developing critically reflective thinking processes, and strong community partnerships in field placements, professional organizations and service learning.

Our programs of study include coherent and relevant curriculum that meet North Dakota program approval standards as well as specific industry standards.
