The primary role of today’s College of Education is to prepare professional educators, counselors, and education leaders in many roles, creating one of the most stable and high quality school workforces in the world. With nearly 1,600 students enrolled in the COE, approximately 960 are undergraduates, making education one of the most popular majors at Minnesota State Mankato.

The College also serves approximately 800 graduate level students seeking doctorate and Master’s degrees as well as specialist licensure and continuing education certification.

In addition to our core academic programs, the College houses award-winning centers in the areas of engaged leadership, school-university partnerships, and mentoring and induction.

We are home to our university’s aviation and military science departments. The College also administers the award-winning Children’s House, a non-profit child care facility operated on the campus of Minnesota State Mankato.
