Educational Studies

Educational Studies is a non-certification option for students who wish to pursue work in fields related to education and child development, but who do not necessarily want to be a classroom teacher or pursue the requirements for teacher certification. Features of the Bachelor of Arts degree in Educational Studies include an 18-credit special education minor with the opportunity to obtain an additional minor in any area of the student’s choice and internships in a variety of educational settings.

Career options include work for programs that prefer candidates with education degrees, but do not require state certification, such as Head Start or private preschools, and positions in education-related agencies, children’s hospitals, child welfare agencies, non-profit child advocacy organizations, zoos/aquariums, children’s museums, and other children’s educational programs. The degree could also support employment as a child life specialist, education-based paraprofessional, educational lobbyist, curriculum writer, educational sales representative and further studies in educational research, policy, and more.
