Degrees Offered in Education

One of the reasons College of Saint Mary education majors are highly sought after by schools is because of their ability to hit the ground running in the real-world classroom setting. That’s because our program uniquely places you in classrooms a full year prior to most other programs in the area. You get into the field sooner than in many programs so you can apply what you’re learning and experience the dynamics of actual classrooms as well as the impact of your actions on the children you help teach. This opportunity, combined with the career-relevant endorsements we offer help you prepare to lead and enjoy a fulfilling, fruitful career in education.

You may choose to focus on any level — early childhood, elementary, secondary, special education or K-12 education. We also offer a middle school endorsement option for both elementary and secondary majors. Supplemental endorsements include English as a second language, information technology and coaching.

We also offer Project S.M.A.R.T.— we partner with Girls, Inc so you can teach and mentor the girls on campus, Project L.I.F.E. — a practicum where you will work with under-resourced students, and Crestview Homework Club — where you’ll teach children from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds at the Mercy Housing Project.

Graduate degrees in education allow those with backgrounds in health professions, education or business to advance their professional careers.  Master degrees in education are available for initial certification or to advance best practices for current teachers.  The doctor of education degree is specifically designed to prepare educational leaders in academic, clinical or business careers.  Completed dissertations are available via the institutional repository.
