Programs & Centers

The College of Education and Human Development is well-regarded – our programs are nationally accredited and our Graduate Education program is consistently ranked highly by U.S News & World Report.

Students can graduate from our college with an undergraduate or graduate degree from our two academic units. We also have five minors: Disabilities Studies, Educational Studies, Educational Technology, Human Development & Family Studies and Urban Education.

The School of Education offers one undergraduate major with three concentrations, eight master’s degrees, one specialist and two doctoral programs.

Human Development and Family Studies offers two majors, one minor, two master’s degrees and one doctoral program. 

To help students gain real-world experience, and to provide support for the community, we also oversee a number of centers that advance our mission in the fields of education and human development for a wide audience – students, faculty, UD, local communities and people worldwide.

For example:

An undergraduate student in CEHD can serve as a student teacher at The College School, support individuals with disabilities at our Center for Disabilities Studies or participate in research at our Laboratory Preschool.

Graduate students can host workshop sessions for the National Consortium on Developmental Disabilities, serve an assistantship the Early Learning Center or conduct research on the study of infant language.

Centers also provide support for faculty, UD and the community.  The Education Resource Center and Professional Development Center for Educators provide curriculum materials, books, manipulatives and multi-media tools for educators at UD and in the community. Our Delaware Academy for School Leadership and National Leadership Consortium provide professional development and practical solutions for  administrators. And our Center for Disabilities Studies supports individuals with disabilities in their quest to succeed.
