Our graduates are making an impact on the next generation's development and learning.

The Department of Education has a tradition of service to urban and Catholic schools and we provide candidates with numerous opportunities to further their development as educational professionals. Each Catholic University candidate uses this reflective model as a complex approach to instruction to reflect on situations and use that reflection to improve one’s practice.
