Welcome to the School of Education

Located in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, the School of Education offers  preparation for Minnesota's teachers and leaders. Our students are exposed to real-world problems and solutions, and the opportunity to develop skills across disciplines.

Dedicated attention, skill building and meaningful relationships are core to our student experience. Our students learn from educators who impart a balance of practical, professional knowledge grounded in theory, with ideas you can apply to your own career goals.

Our NCATE accredited programs reach a wide range of students. Whether you are an undergrad or interested in a career change, at the University of St. Thomas, our network of caring faculty, staff, students and alumni can help you achieve your goals.

They not only teach content, but they model it as well by building relationships with students, facilitating engaging discussions and providing authentic assessment that stretches you as a lifelong learner. I have no doubt that at the end of this program I will be prepared, inspired and already at work moving ahead in my career and personal goals.”
