Don't wait for graduation to start pursuing a teaching license – save valuable time and money by earning a license at the undergraduate level with Hamline's unique Undergraduate Teacher Education Program. Students earn a major in the liberal arts field of their choice and a co-major in education while preparing for teacher certification. A BA or BS in the liberal arts, combined with a co-major in education and a Minnesota teaching license, provides new teachers with a depth and breadth of content knowledge and a wide-range of pedagogical skills. As a result they are better equipped to create powerful teaching and learning experiences for their students. They also bring broader thinking skills, acquired through their liberal arts major, to conversations about the issues facing American public schools.
Undergraduates take a core set of courses that address educational issues spanning the K–12 spectrum. Eventually students must decide whether they want to teach in an elementary (K–6), or secondary (5–12) classroom, as the remainder of their coursework prepares them to address the unique teaching and learning environment of their chosen grade levels. Students have early and numerous opportunities to work with K–12 students from diverse populations. Prior to student teaching, they will accumulate nearly 100 hours of classroom experiences. The intent of these experiences is to connect educational theory with classroom practice. Students may also complete their student-teaching requirement abroad through Hamline’s Overseas Student Teaching program Students have opportunities to work on collaborative research projects and/or professional conference presentations with faculty members. The Hamline Education Club also serves as a resource for students interested in educational issues outside the classroom. Members support one another as they matriculate through the program, provide feedback to faculty members regarding programmatic concerns, and engage in service projects with local, national, and international schools. Hamline also has a longstanding relationship with the Hancock Elementary School, located across the street. The Hancock-Hamline Collaboration provides a variety of programs for Hamline students to tutor and mentor the elementary school children.

expected to grow by 12% between 2006 and 2016—about as fast as the
average for all occupations. However, because of the size of the
occupations in this group, this growth will create 479,000 additional
teacher positions." U.S. Department of Labor Statistics
