BS Elementary Education

The Undergraduate Teacher Education Program prepares teachers to impact student learning through research-based methodologies and strong, positive relationships.


The Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education at Cardinal Stritch University prepares teachers to impact student learning through research-based methodologies and strong, positive relationships. We approach teacher education as a reflective, rigorous process through which teacher candidates learn about themselves, their students, and educational practice so our graduates can make the decisions necessary to impact student learning positively across all contexts and with all students.
