Education Studies

The Minor (BC)/Special Concentration (CC/GS) in Education Studies prepares students to pursue graduate studies or jobs in public policy, sociology, history, youth studies, philosophy, psychology and other areas where K-12 education is frequently a focus of coursework and scholarship.

The Special Concentration in Education Studies does not lead to teacher certification but coursework includes field experiences in K-12 urban classrooms. To participate in the Education Studies track, students must submit a declaration of intent during the spring of their sophomore year. Coursework includes Education courses, Educational Foundations courses, and relevant courses in other departments that address educational issues.
