What We Offer

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.
