教学, Learning and Culture program adheres to high standards of academic excellence as it prepares caring, 道德教育工作者.

We focus on developing future educators who are well prepared to teach in culturally diverse schools or to serve youth and adults in other educative experiences. The program promotes excellence and accountability in teaching and learning within a framework of democracy and social justice. 教师 strive to model lifelong learning and the courage to take risks as well as foster critical and creative thinking in professional interactions with others. 


Our graduates go on to touch the lives of many others through strong content knowledge and something more closely related to the St. 爱德华的 mission of social justice. Angie Lux ('12) embodied the spirit of our program through her work as a 生物学 teacher at Del Valle High School. 勒克斯指出 "I love teaching science, but it’s not just about the subject. It’s about who you’re teaching and how you build relationships".  


Within our program, students may choose one of two paths to becoming a professional educator. For those interested in the role of classroom teacher, our Minor in 教师教育 is the ticket. For others who may wish to work within a related field, we offer a 辅修教育研究. Both minors include over 100 hours of internships and related field-work at public, 私人, and parochial schools and other education sites across the region. 同时, our university coursework is grounded in contemporary teaching strategy that provides an example for student-centered, inquiry-driven指令. 教师 in the program provide essential structure, feedback and guidance as students begin to make meaning and acquire skills and knowledge around the craft of teaching and learning.
