If you’re thinking about becoming an education major and you are a prospective Gustavus Student, email us at g-placementcoordinator@gustavus.edu to set up a line of communication or to have some of your questions answered.

If you are on campus, stop by the office of the Admissions and Placement Coordinator, Julie Gronewold, (Anderson 212), or the Department Chair, Dr. Amy Vizenor (Anderson 208) in Anderson Hall. This will get you connected with the department, and we can talk to you about how your course of study might look if you choose to stick with education through your time at Gustavus.
