The Division of Education
Few careers have more opportunity for societal impact than those in education. Preparing students to teach future decision makers is a responsibility that the Division of Education fervently embraces. Through coursework, guided fieldwork and clinical practicums, Loras education students learn the theories and apply the practices found to most effectively meet the needs of today’s young people. Loras students immerse themselves in their learning through our partnerships with local schools and youth centered organizations. As a laptop campus, our students experience the effective and dynamic ways in which technology can enhance and support student learning. With over 700 hours of meaningful engagement in the classroom before students complete their degree, Loras education students are well equipped to problem-solve and model best educational practice.
Loras College offers students many opportunities beyond the classroom to explore and develop their skills in working with children and young adults. As important, these opportunities inform our students’ ethical development, deepen their sense of social responsibility and broaden their awareness of diversity.
Boasting an 89% job placement for 2010 graduates, the Loras Education program offers more than 25 licensure and endorsement programs including early childhood, reading, special education, music, physical education and secondary licensure in twelve major content areas.
