About the Department

The education department at MUM offers two undergraduate programs—one in secondary teacher licensure and the other in educational foundations. The secondary licensure program leads to an Iowa license to teach high school math, science, language arts, or art. The foundations program prepares students who do not plan to become classroom teachers to work in other educational settings or pursue graduate work.

The main aim of both programs is to address a deep and widespread problem in education: that education does not engage and motivate students because it does not connect to their inner lives. The solution that we offer is an approach to education whereby students first gain knowledge of consciousness, and then learn all subjects in connection with that. Through this approach, all learning can be seen as related to oneself and as a result becomes meaningful, useful, and life-supporting.

This central aim of both programs is achieved through four themes: Challenge, Consciousness, Creativity, and Community

Challenge

Students master standards in fourteen areas, including historical and philosophical foundations, learning theory, classroom management, assessment, curriculum development, teaching methods, student differences, and effective communication.

Through their coursework and associated practicums, students learn the principles and practices of Consciousness-Based Education, a rich and systematic approach that connects all teaching and learning to the students’ full development of consciousness.

Creativity
