A Message From the Dean.

For more than 100 years, the Mount has prepared educators who are proficient in content and pedagogy, reflective, and ethical professionals dedicated to leadership in an increasingly diverse technological and global society. Complemented by a liberal arts education in a Catholic setting, our coursework is relevant, comprehensive, rigorous, and stimulating. Instructors integrate theory, research, and practice, as they challenge students to think and act in critical and inventive ways.
