Teach CTE

Appalachian State University is proud to offer the ONLY Bachelor of Science Career and Technical Education Program in the state of North Carolina. The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Program at Appalachian State University is comprised of 75 plus majors and three full-time faculty. Students can choose from five areas of concentration:

Each concentration provides students with the opportunity to focus on middle and high school teaching while developing a greater depth of knowledge in a specific area of Career and Technical Education (CTE). Through experiential learning and relevant projects, students are challenged to develop a comprehensive knowledge base. Partnerships with programs across campus give CTE students the opportunity to work with discipline-specific experts while still learning the art of teaching.

Teaching at the middle and high school level is just one of the pathways that many of our graduates choose to pursue. Individuals with degrees in Career and Technical Education have gone on to work as trainers and educators in business and industry, extension agents, educational consultants, educational vendors, community college instructors and private school instructors. The opportunities are limitless. Consider the possibilities. Consider CTE.
