Class scheduling

St. Catherine University understands busy adults. St. Kate's 35 years of experience offering programs for working adults shapes the collaborative learning experience, in the classroom and online. It also informs our flexible class scheduling.

The Master of Arts in Education program, designed for busy adults making a transition into the teaching profession, is no exception. Courses for the Master of Arts in Education: Teacher Licensure program meet in a "blended" learning format that combines face-to-face learning on campus with online instruction.  

A typical course meets once each week, on a weekday evening or during the day on Saturday or Sunday, on St. Kate's beautiful St. Paul campus. Parking is readily available. In between face-to-face sessions for a course, learning continues online at times and places of your choosing.

We often tell our students that this program, like all St. Kate's graduate programs, is challenging.  As such, even though courses are offered through flexible scheduling, you'll have to plan carefully to balance the demands of graduate school with other work, family and community obligations.

And, because real-world, K-12 school-based experiences are built into the program through fieldwork and student teaching, there are times in the program where you'll need to find ways to fit weekday commitments into your schedule.
