A major in Educational Studies requires completion of one of the academic majors approved for teacher certification or in the case of Childhood Education, either an approved major or an approved academic concentration. Students must also complete the professional Education courses in one of the certification areas (e.g., Childhood) as listed below. Included in the professional courses is a six-credit hour internship. The Education Department in conjunction with Career Services will determine appropriateness of the six-credit hour internship, but it will not consist of the student-teaching internship required for certification.
Possible careers for Educational Studies majors include all non-teaching positions in the schools, sales or promotional work with textbook publishers, and other education-related positions.
