Welcome to the School of Education

Programs in the School of Education are designed to meet the most rapidly growing demands of the profession. We provide opportunities for practicing teachers to enhance their professional training in critical needs areas such as special education, reading and literacy, TESOL, gifted education, and online learning. Additionally, we offer undergraduate programs in pre-K child development, and family and adolescence studies. Additional courses in instructional design for adult learners round out our offerings. We are committed to providing measurable, empirical, standards-based education of a high quality. Our goal is for our graduates to demonstrate the skills, behaviors, and dispositions of digital-age professionals, while adhering to proven instructional strategies and best practices.
