    Intercollegiate Athletics

    Hamline supports 19 intercollegiate athletic teams for men and women. Certain team sports maintain a junior varsity schedule while the individual sports provide everyone an opportunity to compete in most meets and contests. 

    Sports offered for men are: football, tennis, soccer, cross-country, basketball, track and field, swimming, baseball, and ice hockey. 

    The sports offered for women are: gymnastics, cross-country, volleyball, basketball, track and field, swimming, soccer, fastpitch, tennis, and ice hockey. 

    Intercollegiate athletics at Hamline are an integral part of the academic program. While classroom activities take priority over athletic pursuits, students find time to excel in both areas. Feel free to get to know the Hamline Pipers at our Piper Athletics homepage.


    Philosophy of Education

    Hamline has been serving the needs of new teachers for over 150 years. This legacy continues today as we work to prepare teachers who can meet the demands of teaching as we enter the 21st century. To that end, Hamline's education department has adopted the theme of "developing reflective practice in an urban, multicultural context." The education department believes that future teachers educated in this context will be better prepared to teach in a variety of settings. In this way, the education program serves as a bridge to teaching in urban, rural, suburban, and international educational environments.

    Hamline students do not major in education, but complete a full liberal arts major in the field of their choice. Completion of the professional education sequence, taken in addition to the major, leads to a Minnesota teaching license. Certain courses in the sequence may be used for a minor or for specific requirements in the Hamline Plan.

    Teaching is one of the most satisfying and rewarding professions for those who enjoy working with young people. It is also one of the most important and challenging professions. Teachers carry a tremendous responsibility as they work to prepare young people for their lives beyond school.
