Coupled with a focus on strong philosophical and ethical development, our students enjoy a solid liberal arts foundation while studying with faculty members who embody the mission of the College and excel in their particular fields. Whether interested in teaching young children or high school students in a traditional or non-traditional environment, the Department of Education has the resources to help students follow their calling.
