This program has been developed for the student who would like to develop teaching skills, but does not plan to pursue a position in a school where a teaching license would be required. This might include obtaining positions working in some private schools, curriculum writing, camp staff positions, training postings, or working with children outside of public education. Such a program should be designed in consultation with a faculty advisor after the student has had significant college experience. TESOL and Intercultural Studies minors would pair well with this degree.
This degree does not lead to a teaching license.
The Department of Teacher Education, in keeping with the overall goals of the university, expects Education Studies graduates to demonstrate the following broad learner outcomes:
