Education Department

Welcome to the Education Department at Saint Anselm College. Saint Anselm College has been educating teachers since 1920. The Teacher Education Program offered at Saint Anselm College is designed to integrate liberal arts general education, specialized content major, and teacher education requirements.

Our programs emphasize a strong theoretical base and practical experience. Its strengths lie in the use of reflective practice, multiple opportunities for teaching in diverse classrooms, and extensive content knowledge. In doing so, it is not unusual that most of the student's electives must be utilized. For this reason early career decision and careful program planning are essential. Refer to the catalogue for specific course descriptions and plans of study.
