Our Academic Programs

The College of Education and Human Development is made up of two academic units – the School of Education and the Department of Human Development and Family Studies.

Both units integrate classwork and field experience to ensure our students are well prepared to succeed in their chosen field upon graduation.  

The School of Education is a nationally recognized and authoritative source of knowledge about the practices that impact students’ academic and social development and educators’ professional development. Our faculty members work with over 1000 students in our diverse undergraduate programs and graduate programs. Our programs prepare professional educators to be reflective practitioners who serve a diverse community of learners as scholars, problem solvers and partners.

Human Development and Family Studies is a program of study for both graduate and undergraduate students, addressing the needs of children, adults and families across the life course. There are many careers open to students in this field; Family and Community Services, Legislative Advocacy, Non Profit Administration, Counseling, Family Law, Early Childhood Education and Disabilities and Intervention. This program takes the classroom into the real world, focusing on the issues that affect every facet of life. “We do more than just work with people…we make a difference in people’s lives.”
