Innovative teacher education programs, outstanding faculty, relationships with community organizations, and strong research opportunities make MSU a dynamic place for studying education and public services. Spartans have an enduring commitment to help society, through our mission of social justice and positive change. Our close proximity to the Michigan State Capitol Building and state government is an added bonus for students interested in public service.
Schools and districts from across the nation come to MSU to recruit our graduates. Our five-year Teacher Preparation Program, which culminates in a year-long, post-graduate internship, sets our students apart by ensuring that participants get more than 1,000 hours of classroom experience. We have many successful alumni working in settings like schools, nonprofit organizations, hospitals and health care agencies, governments, automotive companies, social services and more.
