Learning Community


SMSU Learning Communities, which offer a master’s in Education with an emphasis in teaching, learning and leadership, serve the graduate learning needs of professional educators studying a distance from campus. Past students attended learning communities as close as Granite Falls and Willmar and as far as Brainerd, MN,  Rapid City, SD, and Mason City, IA. Our learning community faculty continually explore and respond to requests for learning communities in new areas as well. 

Our learning community model is centered on a spiraled curriculum which fosters transformational learning and application to professional practice. Check out student testimonials from past students to get a sense of the difference a learning community can make in your graduate education and professional development.

SMSU is proud that its learning community faculty are leaders in the field of distance graduate learning. Our learning community professors have pioneered the model and are expert at facilitating group and individual professional development.
