Graduate Programs in Education at Christian Brothers University aim to engage men and women in a self-reflective process of lifelong learning characterized by integrity, competence, compassion, creativity, and leadership. The goals of the Graduate Programs in Education are to prepare individual educators to reflect the values and traditions of the Christian Brothers, to work effectively and collaboratively in rapidly changing schools and related settings, and to prepare educators and others for positions of leadership.
Education programs at the graduate level include the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) for initial teaching licensure with a choice of concentrations; the Master of Education (MEd) for advanced professional development; the Master of Science in Educational Leadership (MSEL); and the LANCE/LEaPs post-baccalaureate and licensure programs, Catholic teacher-service programs that combine graduate study, spiritual development, and community living for teachers in the Catholic schools.

Full accreditation decisions were made public in the fall of 2015. As part of our on-going accreditation, CAEP requires universities to post candidate scores for public information.
