The mission of the Education Department of the College of the Holy Cross is to expose students to the psychological, historical, political, and social dimensions of contemporary education.  Students who minor in Education concentrate in one of two strands, focused either on examining the processes of teaching and learning or on critically analyzing the cultural and programmatic aspects of schooling.  Students in the teacher licensure program are prepared to be highly effective, reflective, justice-seeking educators.  Consistent with the mission of the college, we particularly wish to orient students towards activism and vocational pursuits that create and expand opportunity, especially for historically underserved and marginalized populations.
