Hallmarks of SLU's B.A. in Education Program

What is a Reflective Scholar-Practitioner?

SLU's School of Education defines teachers as reflective scholar-practitioners, and this perspective is interwoven into the very fabric of our program. Reflective scholar-practitioners, including our undergraduate teacher education students and our teacher education faculty, honor each and every individual as a whole person in pursuit of the truth in the context of Jesuit values.

  • Reflection includes a commitment to mission-driven action.
  • We value the process of learning, embrace high academic standards, and recognize that all practitioners must be scholars to be effective educators and leaders in partnership with and for the human community.
  • We are committed to preparing practitioners who think on systems levels about inequality and actively work for greater justice. To this end, reflection is a valued tool essential to the multiple roles that educators, including teacher educators, embrace.

Student Handbook

Fieldwork

Practical experience, classroom observations and a culminating yearlong internship/student teaching are integrated into the education curriculum experience at Saint Louis University. Students spend a significant amount of time in urban and suburban settings throughout the program, including local public, private, and charter schools.

The culminating yearlong internship/student teaching experience affords the unique opportunity to be a member of a faculty and professional learning community within a host school. Students engage in real-life teaching over a longer period of time while gaining greater knowledge of school policies and procedures, reflective practice, leading to a more knowledgeable transition to the first year of teaching.

The School of Education houses the PRiME Center where undergraduates can apply for additional research opportunities.

Admission Requirements

First-Year Students

Solid academic performance in college preparatory coursework is a primary criterion in reviewing a first-year applicant’s file. Saint Louis University has 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 submitting a test score.

To be considered for admission to any Saint Louis University undergraduate program, you 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 their ability to meet the academic rigors of Saint Louis University. The School of Education's admissions committee reviews completed courses to determine which fulfill requirements for state certification.

Continuing Students

First-time students at Saint Louis University in a college or school other than education, who wish to change their major to education, will need to complete the following before admittance to this program:

  • Assessment of Disposition: Teacher Candidate Assessment Disposition-Student (TCAD-S)
  • Discernment Conversation with Education Faculty Member
  • 2.75 cumulative GPA
  • 3.00 Education GPA and any EDUC courses taken prior to admission

    • Writing 193
    • Reading and Comprehension 202

Please contact the School of Education's Undergraduate Academic Advisor for more information and to obtain the major-change application form. Once accepted into the School of Education, students are assigned an academic advisor and faculty mentor. Students who change their major to education after their first semester at SLU may need to complete additional courses and/or add time to earning their degree.

International Students

  • Non-native English speakers must score a minimum of 6.5 on the IELTS, 80 on the iBT or 550 on the paper-based TOEFL exam.

The following five key learning outcomes are the driving force of the curriculum in SLU's undergraduate education program. Our program is intentionally designed to develop in each graduate an awareness and understanding of their sense of identity, sense of purpose, sense of context, sense of inquiry, and sense of praxis as described in the Compass Themes.

  1. As reflective scholar-practitioners, teacher candidates will analyze the rich complexities of an individual’s identity.
  2. As reflective scholar-practitioners, teacher candidates will defend an evolving sense of purpose grounded in Jesuit values.
  3. As reflective scholar-practitioners, teacher candidates will critically examine how education is influenced by context.
  4. As reflective scholar-practitioners, teacher candidates will engage in critical inquiry.
  5. As reflective scholar-practitioners, teacher candidates will demonstrate responsive teaching praxis in service to the human community.

Teacher Learning Community Seminars

Teacher learning community seminars (TLCs) (EDUC 1015, EDUC 1025, EDUC 2015, EDUC 3015, EDUC 3025, EDUC 4015, and EDUC 4025) are co-requisite courses, by phase, to all education courses and allow for repeatable registration. Education majors must repeat a co-requisite teacher learning community seminar until all coursework within each phase is completed. It is recommended that majors follow the concentration area roadmap for course registration. The roadmap presents the minimum number of TLC credit hour requirements.

Non-Course Requirements and Continuation Standards

For a complete list of non-course requirements and continuation standards, see the School of Education Undergraduate Handbook.

Note: All EDUC courses in Phase I (1000-level) and Phase II (2000-level) can be taken together (following the required prerequisite and co-requisite courses), but all Phase I and II courses must be completed and passed before beginning Phase III (3000-level) courses. All courses in Phase III must be completed and passed before beginning Phase IV (4000-level).

A 2.75 cumulative GPA is required to be in good standing in the program. A 3.00 GPA is required for all EDUC coursework and all content area course requirements to be in good standing. A final grade of "C-" in any EDUC course, or any content course required for certification, is not accepted as a passing grade. In any course with a final grade of  "C-" or below, the course must be repeated and passed. Please note this may delay program completion and require additional coursework/teacher learning community seminars.

Roadmaps are recommended semester-by-semester plans of study for programs and assume full-time enrollment unless otherwise noted.  

Courses and milestones designated as critical (marked with !) must be completed in the semester listed to ensure a timely graduation. Transfer credit may change the roadmap.

This roadmap should not be used in the place of regular academic advising appointments. All students are encouraged to meet with their advisor/mentor each semester. Requirements, course availability and sequencing are subject to change.
