"In its profile on Muhlenberg, The Princeton Review notes, 'Students who attend Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania are welcomed into a "close-knit" community and are privy to "well-rounded liberal arts education." And while the academics are certainly "rigorous," undergraduates here love the fact it’s "[not] a cutthroat atmosphere." Importantly, students have their pick of many terrific disciplines, from the "amazing theater department to the extremely strong education and science programs."

Undergrads are also happy to champion their "dedicated" professors who understand how to create and foster "engaging courses." They also value the fact that Muhlenberg instructors "really take the time to get to know you and answer your questions.’”

Muhlenberg College has been educating teachers for more than one hundred years. As educational aims and practices have changed over time, our goals have remained steadfast. We are committed to preparing future educators within a rigorous and rich liberal arts tradition.

Our goals are really very simple. We aim to educate dedicated classroom teachers whose values include reflective practice and a belief that all children deserve a quality education. The democratic and social justice mission of public education is perhaps no more important than in this historical period as we continue to look to our public schools for equity in life opportunities and common values in an increasingly plural and fragmented society. To learn more about our department’s vision of teacher education, we invite you to read our Department Statement of Mission.

The faculty and staff of the Education Department are excellent teachers, scholars and mentors to our students. We all value the privilege of shaping teachers who will in turn play vital roles in the lives and futures of their students. Once students graduate from Muhlenberg College and our program we believe they are ready to meet modern education’s challenges.
