Wesleyan’s Certificate in the Study of Education helps students acquire a deeper understanding of education and its relationship to society by studying educational institutions, practices and thinking in the U.S. and abroad, from the elementary to the university level. 

What You’ll Study

  • The majority of courses required for the seven-course certificate focus on the psychological and sociological dimensions of education, with others focusing on the tools and skills for analyzing education and on broader contexts within the history and philosophy of knowledge, and still others providing students with concrete teaching experience in a variety of instructional settings.
  • The certificate does not provide the course credentials for CT State Initial Educator Certification required for teaching positions in public schools.
