What will I learn?

Completing a major in Art Education, Elementary Education, or Secondary Education automatically completes the courses for licensure. Whichever major you choose, you’ll have a breadth of opportunities, materials, experiences and professional mentoring that places our education program with the most highly regarded in the region among professional educators.

The mission of the Education Programs at Saint Michael’s College is to contribute to the advancement of society through education, with an emphasis on creativity, curiosity, contemplation, collaboration, reflection, and social justice.

If you are interested in teaching outside of a traditional classroom setting, our Education Studies major may be right for you.

You will have opportunities to visit classrooms in local schools to observe and learn from master teachers, and to teach alongside them.
You will prepare instructional materials, teach small and large group lessons and network with teachers.
You will work in school and community placements beginning in your first education class including local elementary and secondary schools, at the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, COTS (Committee for Temporary Shelter), Winooski Community Center Refugee Resettlement Programs, or Burlington Boys and Girls Club, among many other places.
Our education program will help you develop the values and skills to teach all learners. You will become confident in meeting the diverse learning needs reflected in today’s classrooms.
We model the same active methods and participatory techniques you will need to use in the field. We show you how to teach using the latest software, apps, manipulatives, and more to create both remote and in-person curriculum and lesson plans.
