Welcome to the Lindenwood School of Education

Do you want to BE THE DIFFERENCE? You are in the right place! At Lindenwood University School of Education you will be prepared to impact lives beyond a lifetime, leaving a legacy for generations to come.

The Mission of the School of Education (Unit) at Lindenwood University is to prepare educators, counselors, and leaders who meet the standards set forth by national accrediting organizations, state licensing agencies, and/or other learned societies.

Our program completers are . . .

  • Educated in the theory and research-based practices of their content field from a global perspective.

  • Able to demonstrate best practices in pedagogy and adult learning/andragogy.

  • Caring professionals who are disciplined and others-centered. They are skilled in communication and collaboration with diverse learners, colleagues, community, and other stakeholders.

  • Lifelong learners who pursue ongoing professional development in order to respond to the changing needs of their educational context. (Final approval by SOE on May 22, 2015.)

In the School of Education we believe teaching is a blend of art and science. Our programs combine practical application and theory, with an emphasis on exposure to authentic environments early and often. Additionally, our students and graduates alike have had opportunities to listen and interact with renowned education leaders such as Dr. Temple Grandin and Dr. Robert Marzano to name a few.

Our highly credentialed and experienced education faculty bring both academic and real world professional achievement to the classroom. They collaborate with colleagues from many school and community partnerships to deliver outstanding innovative learning opportunities for all of our education students at every level of experience.

Our small class sizes support the building of relationships that augment the development of our students into lifelong learners who excel in the pursuit of knowledge to enhance personal and professional development in order to make a difference. Our faculty offer and deliver wise, personalized, interactive, and extensive guidance to our students before and after graduation.

We have over 55 certification and degree programs offered in a variety of formats at many locations throughout the region, including clusters, hybrid and online to help you gain your degree but keep your life. Degrees offered include bachelor of arts, master of arts, educational specialist, and doctorate of education.

Whether you are an undergraduate or an experienced teacher, we invite you to explore the variety of pathways to begin or further your education toward training, obtaining a credential, and/or research.

"Teaching and Leading as an Art and a Science"
The School of Education agrees that the general outcome of the teacher education program must be teaching professionals that believe and implement teaching as a blend of “Art” and “Science” as represented by the Beauty and Mechanism of the Spellmann Clock Tower… Teaching as an art because teaching is a craft that must be learned and applied in an authentic environment. Teaching as a science because it must be influenced by research and best practice for optimal student learning to be achieved.
