Education Studies (BSE)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Programs (Graduate and Undergraduate)

The major in Education Studies is designed as a flexible program of study within the area of Education.  Candidates for the degree complete the university’s General Education Program, Human Development and Learning, the Professional Education Core, Content Area Reading, Research in Educational Studies, Service Learning, and Professional Education Electives.  Beyond these specific requirements, degree candidates will work with a faculty advisor to develop a concentrated area of study that best meets their academic and professional goals.  Elective credits allow students to either earn a minor, or explore additional areas of interest within the university.

The Education Studies program is intended to serve the needs of university students and working professionals who desire or are required to have a background in the field of education, while allowing them the flexibility to enhance their backgrounds in at least one area of specialization to best suit their needs.  While this program does not necessarily meet the requirements for a teaching license, close work with a faculty advisor may allow a candidate to complete course work that will position them for future study and licensure in an appropriate field.
