Your Teacher Education Experience

  • Curriculum is designed to integrate academic coursework with field experience.
  • Programs prepare graduates to assume leadership roles in both public and private schools.
  • Students work closely with the teacher education faculty, who are committed to social justice and community.
  • Our classes are small compared with other teacher education programs. Completion of the teaching credential and Master of Arts in Teaching is typically 3 to 4 semesters. Students enrolled in our other master's programs will need more time to complete all requirements.

It was a privileged experience to share classes with gifted, committed, and dynamic Catholic school educators, who were not only fellow students and professors, but became valued friends throughout the course."
