The Master of Education Program at the University of St. Thomas is designed to develop master classroom teachers, instructional specialists and school leaders who demonstrate the ability to translate and apply educational research in instructional settings. In addition, the Counselor Education Program prepares professional counselors for both school and non-school settings.
