School of Education & Public Service Offers Summer Workshops



Teachers, are you looking for a fun and relaxing way to spend a summer week AND renew your teaching license? We can help! The Cumberland University School of Education and Public Service will offer a variety of summer workshops for educators from June 10th through the week of July 22nd.

Most courses are from Monday – Friday and count for three-semester-hour undergraduate credit. They are evaluated on a pass/fail grading system.

“Each course is appropriate for license renewal and/or professional growth,” Cummings said. “They cover an array of timely topics for educators who are looking to build upon their careers.”
