We are proud of our history and mission. We’re also proud of the fact that we’ve been educating teachers since 1905, that we have been leaders in the online education movement since it began in the 1990s, and that over 28,000 master teachers have earned degrees from our Master of Arts in Teaching online program since 1990.


To give you a better sense of the guiding principles of our online Masters of Arts in Teaching program, we’d like to tell you a bit about our history.

Marygrove College was founded in 1905 by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We are an independent, Catholic liberal arts college that attracts and serves students of all faiths. At Marygrove, students in our online Masters of Art in Teaching program will benefit from a rich history of scholarship and responsibility within the community, an extraordinarily devoted faculty, and a host of academic resources, including an exciting living urban laboratory in which to research and learn.

The values of our institution mandate that we help, respect, explore, think and act in ways that help create a more just and humane world. Competence, Compassion and Commitment are the ideals that form the basis for everything we do. These same values are what students embrace and live out as a result of their education here, and that makes us proud.

The fundamental purpose of Marygrove College is to educate each student toward intellectual and professional competence; toward career flexibility through grounding in the liberal arts; and toward active compassion and commitment. To this end, Marygrove provides a personalized learning environment which, through excellent teaching in its undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education programs.
