Educational Studies

Welcome to Educational Studies

The Educational Studies Department, in collaboration with colleagues on campus and in the community, strives to:

  • provide opportunities for students to engage in the study of education as an interdisciplinary field of inquiry and advocacy;
  • prepare teachers to provide social service and leadership in culturally diverse, economically challenged, public educational systems; and
  • develop both contributions within the context of Macalester's continuing commitments to academic excellence, internationalism, cultural pluralism, and civic engagement.

As a selective liberal arts college in a resource-rich urban setting, Macalester offers distinctive opportunities to fulfill this multifaceted mission.
