As stated in the mission statement, Martin Luther College's purpose is "to train a corps of Christian witnesses who are qualified to meet ministry needs of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS) and who are competent to proclaim the Word of God faithfully and in accord with the Lutheran Confessions in the Book of Concord."  To that end, MLC offers the following degrees.

Bachelor of Science in Education

Students who satisfactorily complete an education curriculum graduate with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education.  Students major in early childhood, elementary, or secondary education.  Graduates who are recommended by the faculty for assignment to the Christian ministry meet the teacher certification requirements of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Also, graduates who meet Minnesota Board of Teaching Standards qualify for Minnesota licensure.
