The purpose of this handbook is to acquaint students with the Teacher Education program at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University and to make them aware of the requirements necessary for successful completion of this program. If students are considering entering the teaching profession, it is important that they know the following information and know it early enough in their college career so that they can pursue a teaching major or minor without any significant problems. All Education students must abide by the requirements specified in this handbook.


This Education handbook was initially planned, prepared, and compiled by a committee of Elementary Education majors and Secondary Education/K-12 minors along with faculty members and administrators in 1975-76. Their purpose was to assemble the information students would need during their college career and make it available in one handbook.

The handbook is revised each year by the chairperson and Education Department faculty members.
