Concordia's College of Education

Overview of programs 

Secondary Education

The secondary program at Concordia consists of professional education courses of both theory and pedagogy and a subject area endorsement option in either a field endorsement, a comprehensive subject major endorsement, or two subject major endorsements. 

Middle Level Education

The middle level education program at Concordia prepares our candidates to teach in grades 4-9 in Lutheran, parochial, and public schools. Concordia’s reputation means that we have many requests for teachers each year and our offices will work with you to find a position. 

Available endorsements include early childhood, English language learners (ESL/ELL), special education. 

Elementary Education

The elementary education program requires professional education classes and classes in a concentration area taught in elementary schools. At the completion of the program, you will be quipped to teach K-6 in any school.

Available endorsements include early childhood, English language learners (ESL/ELL), special education. 

Special Education

The special education endorsement requires professional education classes as well as those required for the age level of teaching you desire. You may select either an elementary special education endorsement or a middle/secondary special education endorsement

Early Childhood Education

The early childhood education program is an endorsement that prepares candidates to work with young children and their families in a variety of settings. Upon program completion, you may serve as a teacher in a child care center or preschool program, or as a kindergarten, first, second or third grade teacher.
