About the College of Education
Our rigorous academic programs are designed for future teachers and current educators who believe in working collaboratively to meet the challenges of 21st century schools.
Our bachelor's and master's degree programs—driven by our mission to impact student learning one educator at a time—equip you to be an educator who's memorable and influential in every aspect of the school community.
Extend Your Influence to the Classroom and Beyond
The world needs you—your passion, your understanding, and your ability to reach students and influence the educational community in ways no one else can. Learn from a university that understands there's no "one-size-fits-all" approach to education.
Our global reach allows us to put innovative resources at your fingertips, while our physical and online classroom settings provide you with a small community of learners who can support and challenge you along the way.
You'll learn from faculty members who have advanced degrees and hands-on experience in teaching and administration. That means you'll learn from veteran educators who understand the day-to-day challenges you'll face in and out of the classroom.
Choose from bachelor's to post-graduate degrees in education.
