Educational Studies Major

The Bachelor of Arts in Educational Studies is an interdisciplinary major designed for students who are interested in the field of education in all its forms.

Educational Studies majors learn to think critically about issues of equity and social justice in educational and community contexts and have the opportunity to contribute meaningfully to local, statewide, and national communities through hands-on experience in their coursework. Educational Studies majors go on to serve as thoughtful leaders and change agents in their respective fields.

Students who choose the Educational Studies major might be interested in working with educational non-profits, children’s museums, education policy, children’s hospitals, applying for graduate school in education, or teaching abroad.
