Excellence in Education

If teaching is your passion, and your focus is early childhood, elementary, middle level or physical education, then the University of Northern Iowa College of Education is for you. Here you add to the legacy of the largest teacher education program in Iowa.

Diversity of choice and careers awaits our health and human services majors, who go on to excel in fulfilling professions with degrees in movement and exercise science, athletic training and rehabilitation studies, public health, recreation, tourism and nonprofit leadership.
