Graduate Programs in the Division of Education and Human Services are designed for both currently certified teachers looking to add a certification or enhance their skills, and for those who wish to enter the field of education and become a certified teacher. We also offer programs for those working in education related fields that do not require certification. Through course work, students will acquire a wide range of knowledge and skills designed to prepare them to become educators and leaders who value student diversity and can effectively apply educational theory, best pedagogical practices, instructional technology, and formative and summative assessment.
