Major in Educational Studies

The Educational Studies Major (Bachelor of Arts in Educational Studies) provides a foundation that is appropriate for students who may choose to enter a teacher certification program at the graduate level as well as for students who may later wish to embark upon other careers in education. The major is also appropriate for students who intend to pursue graduate study in other areas such as law or business but who need a comprehensive understanding of the complexity of educational issues in order to contribute to meaningful decision making in their professional and private lives. 

Coursework for the EDS major consists of four core courses taken in sequence during the junior and senior year. The courses are designed to support students learning how to engage and conduct meaningful work in real educational contexts. They are also geared towards students helping students design and implement a research project in an area of particular interest to them.  In addition to the four courses, students will select additional electives in consultation with their faculty advisor that augment their learning and research.
