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, one associate’s degree, five master’s degrees, four combined undergraduate and master’s degrees (4+1 programs), one specialist program, and two doctoral programs with several possible specializations.

Human Development and Family Studies offers two undergraduate majors, one minor, one master’s degree, two combined undergraduate and master’s degrees (4+1 programs), 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 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.
