Careers and Graduate Success in Education

There is always a need for great teachers. Augustana's Teacher Education Program has a record of almost 100 percent graduate placement in elementary, middle school, high school, and special education.

Augustana University education majors are highly sought after to fill teaching positions upon program completion.  In addition to traditional classroom teaching, our graduates continue on in the field of education to fulfill admininstrative and leadership roles in today's schools as principals, superintendents, and curriculum directors.  America’s schools have geographically based shortages in every area of teaching, particularly in rural and urban schools.  Housed in the Augustana School of Education are two additional majors--Communication Disorders (Speech/Language Pathologists & Audiologists) and Sign Language Interpreters. Both of these fields have high need; employers are eager to hire individuals from either of these majors.
