1. Multiple levels of study. Our Graduate Education programs are designed to help current teachers advance to the next level of mastery within their profession and to prepare non-teaching professions to enter the field of education.
2. Small class size. We strongly believe that a small-group learning environment and one-on-one attention are beneficial for students at the graduate level. These factors contribute toward creating a comfortable, dynamic atmosphere where students and professors can engage in a dialogue of ideas.
3. Faculty engagement. We take great pride in giving students the individual attention needed to make this a successful and meaningful journey. Our faculty promote student development through active participation and making connections between theory and research-based practice.
4. Specialized programs. In addition to traditional MEd degrees, we offer administrative certifications, specialized endorsement programs, and a variety of subject-specific post-baccalaureate programs.

The Mission for the Education Department of Saint Francis University is to provide a curriculum for pre-service and in-service educators that will develop and reinforce reflective practices. We believe that our students must develop the skill to guarantee a learning environment in which all children can learn and achieve their own kind of individually configured excellence—an environment that nurtures the unique talents and creativity of children; understands, respects, and incorporates the diversity, abilities, and experiences of children into the learning process; and cultivates the personal commitment of their students to enduring habits of life-long learning.
The education program at Saint Francis University will strive to instill the belief that teaching and learning comprise a holistic process that connects ideas and disciplines to each other and to the personal experiences, environments, and communities of students. Consequently, the process of teaching must be dynamic and reciprocal, responding to the many contexts within which students learn. Such teaching demands that teachers integrate their knowledge of subjects, students, the community, and curriculum to create a bridge between learning goals and learners' lives.
