Students with an education degree from St. Catherine University get noticed. Many principals put St. Catherine University graduates’ résumés at the top of the pile when making hiring decisions. That’s not surprising — St. Kate's has been educating women to be teachers since 1905.
When you major in education at St. Kate’s, you will be prepared to earn your teacher's license within the following three areas:
- Elementary Education (K-6)
- Secondary Education (5-12)
- Kindergarten through Grade 12
