A Word from the Director . . . meyer 
Devoted to Our Mission
Abdul Kalam, 11th President of India, once said, "To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goal." Martin Luther College's mission is to train a corps of Christian witnesses who are qualified to meet the ministry needs of the WELS. With single-minded devotion, the MLC master's program carries out that mission. Read how. . .
Meet the MS Ed Graduate     
Timothy Mueller


Like most WELS principals, Tim Mueller (MLC BS '06, MSEd '11) is a busy man. But he feels privileged - overjoyed, in fact - to be so. "My joy is in serving my God to the fullest of my abilities out of thanks and praise for all that has been done for me," he says. Read more about Tim's service . . .


Which MLC Faculty Teach Graduate Students?


Nine MLC faculty members serve on the undergraduate and graduate faculty. Like all MLC faculty members, they have real ministry experience. They also have gained additional expertise through advanced study and have a terminal degree (doctorate) or are near completion of such a degree. The on-campus graduate faculty members are listed here.

Summer Courses through Continuing Education

After completing a degree, many teachers want to keep learning. MLC provides courses and certificate programs that fill the professional growth needs of teachers. Courses are available in the areas of technology, special education, staff ministry, and state licensure. A complete listing of the Summer 2013 offerings can be found here

Foundations of Educational Research Now Completely Online
Summer 2011 Class


EDU5005 Foundations of Educational Research is moving to an entirely online format beginning this summer. Previously the course required a one-week on-campus component. While past students treasured the on-campus

 experience, the increasing number of students from distant locations, even overseas, has made the week-long face-to-face experience impractical. Professors Tess and Meyer have refocused and reconfigured the course content to deliver a high-quality online learning environment.
