Our students have gone on to have successful careers in education with the assistance of Monmouth University’s extensive network of local school and district partnerships. At Monmouth, students are introduced to a variety of teaching environments and work with a diverse group of individuals, and small and large groups of students, making them more marketable upon graduation.
