Educational Studies is a program designed to help students major in education with a non-licensed teaching degree. This degree will prepare students for a variety of career opportunities in education that don’t require a teaching license. Whether they want to work in educational policy, teach internationally, work with youth in non-school settings or have found that the traditional classroom is not a good fit during their studies to become a teacher, the educational studies program may be right.
The foundational coursework in this program provides insight into the current and future state of education, while the electives will allow students to personalize the program to meet their interests. In addition, the program includes an internship/capstone experience that is personalized to align with the student’s career goals.
Educational Studies majors go on to develop educational programs or curriculum and work in various informal learning environments, corporate settings, and nonprofit organizations.
