The Educational Studies major is designed for students seeking careers where they will work with children and/or youth in environments other than a traditional classroom setting. Intended to grant opportunities to engage students in the study of education as a field of inquiry, this major provides an individualized and integrated pathway aligned within a liberal arts curriculum. A primary expectation of this program is that it will provide students a strong educational foundation to seek admission into graduate programs. Students completing this program have entered graduate programs and pursued careers in child life, speech pathology, camp directorships, student life/higher education administration, children and youth ministry, educational policy, advocacy, non-profit management, and others. Contact the Educational Studies Coordinator to learn more about this program.
