The Education Department, working with the other Academic Departments of the College of Saint Benedict/Saint John’s University, builds upon the Common Curriculum of a dynamic liberal arts program to prepare undergraduate students to become strong and effective teachers according to our “Teacher as Reflective Decision Maker” conceptual framework.

K-12 classroom experience as observers, aides, tutors, and instructors in diverse educational settings is woven throughout candidates’ four years of study and practice.
All licensure programs are approved by the Minnesota Board of Teaching.
All candidates affirm their instructional effectiveness during their student teaching experience by completing a graded teacher work sample and a nationally scored Stanford-Pearson Teacher Performance Assessment.
Candidates’ average annual employment rate in educational settings exceeds 80%.
