The educational studies program is a major option designed for those who wish to function in education, health and human services settings. Programs reflect a consideration for the nature of the setting in which individuals will work (e.g., youth center, social agency, museum, park, business), the particular skills and competencies required in such career (e.g., program planning, technology utilization, interpersonal and multicultural facilitation) and the nature of the particular function which characterizes the option (e.g., program design, instruction, service delivery).
The Educational Studies program requires a 2.500 cumulative GPA to be accepted into the major.
Minimum 121 total credit hours, minimum 39 upper-division credit hours. Students are required to meet all university requirements, including a 2.500 cumulative GPA, for graduation. The students choose electives that are supportive of their particular career emphasis and goal, selected from offerings in the College of Education, Health, and Human Services and other professional schools.
