Educational Studies Update

Our new major in Education Studies is underway and open for business. This interdisciplinary program is designed for students who desire a career in education outside the classroom. Not a licensure program, this degree prepares students with a broad base in educational foundations, educational policy, leadership, and community research — as well as depth in a concentration area. The five concentration options are: Creativity, Innovation and Learning; Disability Studies and Education; Sexuality, Education and Society; Equity and Educational Change; and Critical Youth Studies. Opportunities for graduates will come in the educational non-profit sector as well as policy, research, and community organizing. Dr. Michael Evans has led the development of this program and can be contacted with any questions about the curriculum or the career opportunities for graduates. In addition, if you work in an educational or youth-related non-profit that might make a good internship site for our Education Studies students, get in touch with Dr. Evans!
