In the Augsburg College Education Department, we believe in preparing knowledgeable, responsive teachers committed to educating all learners in a diverse and changing world. Developing a greater understanding of your vocation as an educator is as important as developing the knowledge, skills, and practice of a teacher. Augsburg offers a variety of programs to help future educators make a difference in the lives and learning of P-12 students.

Program for East African future teachers

Among the distinctive features of Augsburg’s Education Department is  our commitment  to educating  teachers to lead our state’s increasingly diverse classrooms. Our East African Student to Teacher (EAST) program, funded by the Collaborative Urban Educator program, seeks to increase the number of licensed educators of East African descent in the state. Augsburg’s Diversity Pipeline Initiative, a partnership between Augsburg, Minneapolis Community and Technical College, Minneapolis Public Schools, and Saint Paul Public Schools, is developing an infrastructure to help foster smooth transitions into teaching.

Education degrees for busy professionals

Degree and/or licensure programs are also available in our Adult Undergraduate program—a flexible bachelor’s degree program for working professionals offered in a hybrid-learning format that combines face-to-face classroom instruction with the convenience of online learning. Learn more about the degrees and licensures offered for AU students on our Programs page.
