Curriculum & Instruction

We are on the pulse of the issues and ideas that are shaping today’s learning environments, from the latest technologies to new methods for instruction. We prepare students to work as educators with people of all ages and in a variety of settings. Our graduates are working in private, public, and charter schools, as well as daycare centers, after-school programs, colleges and universities, online programs, museums, community recreation centers, and in professional settings.

You will find our faculty has a deep interest and concern in education, and they know what it means to teach. They work continuously to improve and refine their own teaching abilities, providing you with an opportunity to learn from expert, award-winning educators as you start to develop your own teaching style.

Academic Programs

One of the strengths of our department is the breadth and depth of our academic offerings, designed to prepare both undergraduate and graduate students for a variety of careers in education. As future practitioners and researchers, our students have many opportunities within the school and in the community to develop their skills as educators.
