About the MAE

When teaching is a dream and working is a reality.

The Augsburg Advantage: Earning a teaching license and a master’s degree simultaneously.

Convenient Classes

Earn a degree while you work with a schedule that doesn’t disrupt yours! Education classes are conveniently held on weeknights or weekends, every other week. Take up to 3 terms off and maintain enrollment status.

Location, Location, Location!

Enjoy an easy commute to Augsburg, located two miles from the US Bank stadium in Minneapolis. Campus parking available.

Engaged, Experienced Faculty & More Personal Attention

Faculty members are trained and skilled in K-12 with a main focus of teaching students. Small class size offers direct access to faculty and advisors.

Practical Training

Maximize your learning experience. Theory and practice are woven into coursework instead of using a prerequisite format. Become a reflective practitioner and hone your teaching skills.

Relevant Learning

Current teaching trends and licensing regulations are incorporated into the curriculum through faculty participation on education boards.

Use our District and Community Relationships

Whether urban or suburban, Augsburg has developed relationships with area schools decade upon decade for field work and student teaching opportunities.

As Affordable As Ever! Financing Available

Augsburg uses a home program tuition rate to make calculating your total cost easier. Although every student may have a different amount of transfer credits, we develop your program step-by-step so you understand the process and realize your options to move at a slightly faster or slower pace. Graduate students may qualify for up to $20,500 of federally funded Stafford loans, not based on need.
