Undergraduate programs in the School of Education

Teacher licensure programs

Elementary Education

The Elementary Education program provides students with a firm foundation in the knowledge, skills and disposition required to be successful in an elementary school classroom. Students are placed in a classroom setting early and often, developing a host of required skills that must be practiced as well as learned. Graduates are eligible for teacher licensure for grades K-6.

Middle/Secondary Education

The Middle/Secondary Education program prepares teachers to lead classrooms in middle and secondary schools in one of seven subject areas:

  • Communication arts/Literature
  • Social sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Spanish (K-12)
  • Music (K-12)

A focus is placed on field experience, which helps to develop skills that must be practiced as well as learned. Graduates are eligible for teacher licensure for grades 5-12. Music and Spanish education majors are eligible for licensure for grades K-12.

Non-licensure programs

Special Education Minor

CSS is currently developing a special education minor. Pending Minnesota Board of Teaching approval, we anticipate offering the special education minor fall of 2019.

Educational Studies

The Educational Studies major supports career exploration for those following a field of study allied with education. This may include students who have a desire to run children's homes, in-home day cares; healthcare students whose profession involves educating patients and their families; students who plan to be involved in the ministry of religious education; people who hope to learn how to effectively home school their children; those who aspire to be college professors; and international students who may have different needs when teaching in a different country.
