Program Overview

Training as a Lutheran Classroom Teacher (LCT) prepares you for professional Word and Service ministry integrating faith and learning in the lives of children, youth, and families in one of the more than 2,500 pre-school, elementary or secondary schools of The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod.

A student preparing to be a Lutheran Classroom Teacher meets the requirements for Minnesota state licensure as a teacher through the College of Education and Science (via a teacher education degree) and meets the requirements for church certification through the College of Arts and Letters (via the Lutheran Theology minor).
