Educational Studies

These undergraduate programs are for students interested in working with children outside the public schools. 

Early Education and Care leads to careers working with children from birth to eight. 

Community Education careers can involve working with children of any age, but most commonly involve school-age children. 

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages prepares you to work in community and international settings supporting speakers of world languages in learning English. This is not a program that prepares you to be an ESL teacher in the public schools. 

The educational studies minor is for students majoring in any other content area who want a chance to explore the field of education without making the commitment of a full major.
