Instill a love for learning in every student
CUI’s School of Education spans from an undergraduate Liberal Studies major to an EdD in Leadership. To be a master educator, you must first be a master learner. For this reason, it is our mission to empower students for a life of teaching, learning, and service to the community. A life of learning not only begins here, but continues throughout your career, as we strive to provide ongoing professional development for our alumni and network of educators.
A rewarding career
Teaching can be an incredibly rewarding career where you have the opportunity to develop a child’s ability to think and wonder. Concordia’s Elementary Subject Matter Preparation Program will prepare you to teach elementary school children by giving you a broad foundation in a variety of subject areas. Students interested in teaching secondary education or high school can choose the subject matter they are interested in teaching from nine majors at CUI. Our Lutheran Teaching Program is also an option for those looking to teach in Lutheran schools at either the elementary or secondary level.
