Welcome to the University of Delaware’s College of Education and Human Development!

students and teacher in garden at the College SchoolOur college is dedicated to finding answers to the problems that confront our schools and to developing solutions to the challenges faced by children, youth and families around the world.

Our faculty and staff, who serve as teachers, researchers, mentors and advisors, challenge our students to become highly skilled professionals in the fields of education and human services.

By integrating classwork with extensive field experience, our students are given the knowledge and tools to positively affect children and families, locally, nationally or around the globe.  Our graduates have the opportunity to become the next generation of leaders – teachers, parent educators, early interventionists, directors of family and community services agencies – all skilled professionals who will make a positive difference in the lives of children, adults and families.

Students are encouraged to work hard, to study and learn.  But also to explore all that our college has to offer, including a study abroad program, research opportunities, volunteer and service learning positions, internships and student groups. 

To learn about all the exciting programs our College provides, please visit our Student Booklet. Each page features a student, alumni or faculty member who has personally benefited from their experiences here. With the wide range of opportunities available, our students find they gain the knowledge, skills, friendships and memories that last a lifetime.
