The College of Education was founded in 1891 to prepare graduates to be teachers in schools and colleges and to advance the study of pedagogy. While this is still true, the college has since incorporated related fields in health and kinesiology.
With the addition of each of our departments, our college has expanded teaching and research in the fields of Curriculum and Instruction, Educational Leadership and Policy, Educational Psychology, Kinesiology and Health Education, and Special Education.
The College of Education focuses on developing education for the individual learner. We inspire teaching methods and policies that work for students and educators of diverse backgrounds.
Undergraduate majors and minors, master’s, and doctoral programs led by esteemed faculty make our college one of the best in the nation. Students can choose from a variety of disciplines, preparing them for careers as teachers, professors, administrators, health professionals, therapists, and much more.
