About Us

The baccalaureate degree program in Educational Studies is a unique program that is designed for individuals who choose to work as educators in human services and resource settings, such as business and industry; out-door education; religious, community, or interest and advocacy groups. 

Individualized programs are developed to reflect a consideration for the nature of the setting in which educators will work (e.g., youth center, social agency, museum, park, business), the particular skills and competencies required in such an educational career (e.g., program planning, technology utilization, interpersonal and multicultural facilitation), and the nature of the particular educational function, which characterizes the options (program design, instruction, service delivery). The program culminates in a semester-long internship in a setting consistent with the students' career goals.
