B.A. Education Studies

B.A. Education Studies (a non-certification program) is intended for those who wish to work with children and families in a variety of settings, considering graduate school or desiring positions in education that do not require state teaching certification. The Education Studies foundational curriculum includes coursework that examines educational psychology, child development and cultural diversity. In consultation with an academic advisor, the student may choose among academic tracks with foci on coaching and physical education, poverty studies, social/behavioral science, teaching English to students of other languages, or choose concentrations to prepare for matriculation into the Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) program. Although Education Studies is a non-certification program that does not lead directly to teacher certification, graduates may be eligible to teach abroad, teach in independent schools or enter post-baccalaureate, graduate or alternative certification programs. A student preparing for application to the Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) Middle Grades Education program should consult with the academic program coordinator to ensure that concentration area coursework satisfies the content requirements for Middle Grades Education.
