And I’m just so excited to tell other people about Miami. To me, it seems they’re on the forefront of this move in education to make it be about relationships, about social-emotional<br>well-being, and about identity in a way that I think it really needs to be.

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.
