College of Education Studies

The College of Education Studies is designed to help students look critically at educational institutions, practices, and thinking in the United States and abroad—from the elementary to the university level.  The College offers a minor and a linked major

The majority of the courses required for the minor focus on the psychological and sociological dimensions of education. Courses from other parts of the university focus on the tools and skills for analyzing education and on broader contexts within the history and philosophy of knowledge.  Another category of courses provides students with concrete teaching experience in a variety of instructional settings.  The goal is to help students acquire a deeper understanding of education and its relationship to society.

The Education Studies minor does not provide the course credentials for CT State Initial Educator Certification that are required for teaching positions in public schools.
