Catholic Education, Minor
Saint Louis University's minor in Catholic Education provides elementary education majors with the requisite coursework to be eligible for elementary religious education certification in the Archdiocese of St. Louis and most, if not all, other dioceses in the United States.
The 21-credit curriculum draws from both Saint Louis University's Department of Theology and its School of Education Educational Studies program. Theology majors who wish to teach in Catholic high schools are welcome and encouraged to enroll in EDF 4835 Foundations of Catholic Education and EDI 4360 Principles and Methods of Catechetics, and to plan their theology coursework to include courses in systematic theology, scripture, moral theology and sacramental theology.
The School of Education at Saint Louis University is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). NCATE and TEAC (Teacher Education Accreditation Council) consolidated to form CAEP (Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation) July 2013. To contact CAEP:
