Teaching is both a science and an art. At its core, the study of education is interdisciplinary, always intertwining the mastery of content knowledge with the practice of teaching pedagogy. The Department of Education offers innovative programs that effectively prepare students to teach in elementary and secondary schools. Programs within the Department provide students with opportunities to extend their liberal arts learning through inquiry into theory and applied research and also provide students with the practical knowledge, skills, and dispositions to become successful collaborative teachers through diverse field experiences in elementary and secondary classrooms.
