Meredith College, one of the largest private women’s colleges in the United States, offers Meredith College Teaching Fellows a dynamic educational experience enriched with opportunities to receive classroom experience, to learn from professional teachers, to volunteer for community projects and to travel and study abroad.
- The teacher education program at Meredith is fully accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and by the North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction. www.meredith.edu/education
- Meredith Teaching Fellows participate in a superior academic program that blends the liberal arts, a major in the chosen academic field, and professional courses leading to teacher licensure. Read more about Meredith’s 40+ majors in Academics.
- Meredith Teaching Fellows may choose an optional Study Abroad program. Recently, Teaching Fellows have studied in England, Denmark, Italy, Iceland and Costa Rica.
- At Meredith, Teaching Fellows gain valuable classroom experience by working in Wake County Public Schools each year they are in the program. As a junior, a public school teacher in the licensure area becomes a mentor teacher and will continue in that role as a cooperating teacher during the student teaching experience.
- Meredith offers Focus on Excellence, a special series of cultural events and activities, to Teaching Fellows at no additional cost. See the 2012-2013 schedule for more information.
- At Meredith, the Teaching Fellows Program focuses on a special theme for each class year. The College offers a Seminar Series to support each theme. The themes are
- Freshmen: Success in College
- Sophomores: Learning to Teach, Learning to Serve
- Juniors: Teachers as Leaders
- Seniors: 21st Century Professionals

Additional Advantages of a Meredith College education
- At Meredith, Teaching Fellows will enjoy a 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio. Meredith students work closely with faculty members on undergraduate research, service learning projects, and other areas of academic interest. Meredith faculty are experts in their fields; 100% of the School of Education’s full-time faculty have earned a doctorate or the highest degree available in their fields.
- Teaching Fellows are required to complete a minimum of 15-17 credit hours of honors work, including an honors thesis. Some Fellows are invited to participate in the full Meredith College Honors Program.
- Meredith’s 225-acre campus in Raleigh provides Teaching Fellows with a capital city location and exciting opportunities to observe public education at the state and local levels.
- At Meredith, Teaching Fellows have the chance to develop strong leadership skills, which can be maximized in a women's college environment. Fellows may choose to take a leadership role in the program and participate in other campus groups—possibly heading up a major campus organization, as many Teaching Fellows have done.
- Meredith offers a career planning service that helps you develop job-search skills and networking that can assist you throughout your life.
