Programs & Centers

The College of Education and Human Development is well-regarded academically– 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 six minors, including UD’s most popular minor–Disabilities Studies, Educational Studies, Educational Technology, Human Development & Family Studies Medical Social Services and Urban Education.

The School of Education offers one undergraduate major with three concentrations, one associate’s degree, along with traditional and online master’s programs, 4+1 programs that combine an undergraduate and master’s degree in 5 years, doctoral degrees and various Courses of Study.

Human Development and Family Sciences offers two undergraduate majors and minors, traditional and 4+1 master’s degrees and a doctoral program.

To help students gain real-world experience, 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, and the community.

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 evaluate the results of social policy initiatives in our Center for Research and Social Policy, 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 training, 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 lead successful, integrated lives.
