Students declare a pre-major in a Teacher Education program at the time of university admission or as soon as possible. After declaring a pre-major, students must apply for acceptance to a cohort—a group of students selected to experience certain parts of the program together. Selection is limited for each cohort to ensure quality instruction; those applicants with the greatest potential for academic success are selected for each cohort. Admission to Miami University or to the College of Education, Health, and Society as a pre-major neither implies nor guarantees selection to a cohort.
Miami students are an eclectic mix of thinkers, doers, leaders and followers, introverts and extroverts, authors, painters, climbers, coders, pianists, philanthropists, and gamers. Just to name a few.
