Education, B.A.

The Bachelor of Arts in Education program at Saint Louis University aims to develop reflective individuals educated in the liberal tradition and committed to service, inquiry and value-centered learning. It also seeks to prepare students who want an education background and have leadership qualities including risk-taking, civic responsibility and ethical character. An education degree is a valuable asset for a number of careers related to education and schooling. 

The main objective of all of SLU's education programs is to prepare dedicated, reflective scholar-practitioners who exhibit the knowledge, skills and dispositions embedded in the conceptual framework of the school. As reflective scholar-practitioners, the shared values that guide the School of Education include social justice, cura personalis (care for the whole person), excellence, integrity and trust, and respect. Students are prepared to be reflective educators who can implement educational programs consistent with their areas of expertise.

Curriculum Overview

SLU's B.A. in education consists of 120-135 credits (depending on certification area), including an education core and content coursework. 

The School of Education provides a well-rounded liberal arts background to enhance students' educational experience.

  • Students enter into a tight-knit community of faculty and peers committed to innovative learning, diversity and the intellectual ideas of the Jesuit tradition.
  • Students are prepared to practice "cura personalis" — care for the whole person — and work for social justice in their communities.
  • Students will graduate prepared to collaborate with families, build classroom communities, have high expectations for all students and advocate for social change.
  • Students will take rigorous coursework and be supported by a collaborative learning community.

Students choose from five different concentrations in the education major:

Early Childhood Education (Birth-Grade 3)

SLU's early childhood education program is for students who are interested in helping young children expand their minds. Students will learn about the intellectual and emotional development of young children from birth to age eight and will explore ways to create an environment that allows all children to thrive.

SLU's early childhood education program emphasizes practical experience. Students will spend the majority of their coursework teaching in local public or private schools.

Early Childhood with Early Childhood Special Education (Birth-Grade 3)

SLU's early childhood with early childhood special education program provides students a concentration and focus on communication skills and techniques specific to teaching young children who have disabilities. This program helps prepare educators to work with young children from birth to age eight and will explore ways to create an environment that allows all children to thrive. 

Students will take courses in teaching methods, children's literature and media, creative arts and play as well as courses that focus on speech and language development and medical implications. 

SLU's early childhood with early childhood special education program emphasizes practical experience. Students will spend the majority of their coursework teaching in local public or private schools.

Elementary Education (Grades 1-6)

This concentration prepares students to develop and instruct children in grades 1-6. Students will learn communication skills and teaching techniques specific to the young learners in these grades.

Students will take courses in teaching methods, children's literature and media, creative arts and movement, and elementary methods of teaching mathematics, science, social studies and language arts.

SLU's elementary education program emphasizes practical experience. Students will spend the majority of their coursework teaching in local public or private schools.

Elementary (Grades 1-6) with Special Education for Mild/Moderate Disabilities (Grades K-12)

Secondary English: The SLU School of Education prepares aspiring English teachers to teach a field rich in nuance, literary tradition, and global value. Students will build on their love of English to engage secondary students to express themselves effectively and creatively. 

Secondary Math: The SLU School of Education prepares aspiring mathematics teachers by ensuring they sharpen their expertise in math while also preparing them to develop curriculum and create classroom environments that are engaging and productive for their students. 

Secondary Social Science: The SLU School of Education prepares aspiring teachers of the social sciences by exposing them to diverse coursework in social sciences. SLU students will gain the knowledge they need to understand and participate in the communities in which they live.

Admission Requirements

Freshman

Solid academic performance in college preparatory coursework is a primary criterion in reviewing a freshman applicant’s file. Beginning with applicants for admission for the 2021-22 academic year, Saint Louis University will be moving to a standardized-test-optional admission process. "Test-optional" means that you can choose whether or not to submit ACT/SAT scores as part of your application for admission. Test scores are not required for admission or scholarships. International students are still required to demonstrate English proficiency, which may require the submission of a test score.

To be considered for admission to any Saint Louis University undergraduate program, the applicant must be approaching graduation from an accredited high school or have an acceptable score on the General Education Development (GED) test.

Transfer

Applicants must be a graduate of an accredited high school or have an acceptable score on the GED. An official high school transcript and/or official GED test scores are required only of those students who have attempted fewer than 24 credits at a regionally accredited higher education institution. Those having completed 24 credits at a regionally accredited higher education institution need only submit a transcript from previously attended college(s).

In reviewing a transfer applicant’s file, the office of admission holistically examines the student’s academic performance in college-level coursework as an indicator of the student’s ability to meet the academic rigors of Saint Louis University.

Continuing Students

Undergraduate students may apply to the School of Education either at the time of their admission to the University or upon completion of at least 15 credits with a cumulative grade point average of 2.75. Students can obtain the major-change application from the Dean's Office of the School of Education.  Once accepted into the School of Education, students are assigned an academic advisor. After declaring their certification area, students are also assigned a faculty mentor.

International Students

  • Non-native English speakers must score a minimum of 6.5 on the IELTS or 80 on the iBT or 550 on the paper-based TOEFL exam AND score a 6 on the Speaking Section of the IELTS or 6 on the Speaking Section of the iBT, or pass an interview with personnel from Saint Louis University’s Office of International Services.  

All admission policies and requirements for domestic students apply to international students along with the following:

  • Demonstrate English Language Proficiency
  • Proof of financial support must include:
    • A letter of financial support from the person(s) or sponsoring agency funding the time at Saint Louis University
    • A letter from the sponsor's bank verifying that the funds are available and will be so for the duration of study at the University
  • Academic records, in English translation, of students who have undertaken postsecondary studies outside the United States must include the courses taken and/or lectures attended, practical laboratory work, the maximum and minimum grades attainable, the grades earned or the results of all end-of-term examinations, and any honors or degrees received. WES and ECE transcripts are accepted.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

There are two principal ways to help finance a Saint Louis University education:

  • Scholarships: Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, service, leadership and financial need.
  • Financial Aid: Financial aid is provided in the form of grants and loans, some of which require repayment.

For priority consideration for merit-based scholarships, apply for admission by Dec. 1 and complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 1.
