College of Education
Our College is committed to provide the best quality education to students in a multicultural and intercultural setting. We deliver undergraduate and graduate programs based on proven best practice, knowledge acquisition, reflective inquiry, critical thinking and respect for the culturally and linguistically diverse learner. We also work to continuously develop a dynamic local, national, and international dimension that promotes innovation and contributes to scientific, educational, economic and social change.
The innovative programs and courses at our College serve some 5,500 graduate and undergraduate students every semester. At the undergraduate level, we offer 31 undergraduate programs of which 22 are leading to teacher certification from elementary to PK-12. In addition, we have non-teacher programs which lead to the B.S. in health and human performance as kinesiology and exercise science, as well as a certificate and associate program in child care and development. At the graduate level, we offer 17 master's specializations in bilingual education, counseling and guidance, curriculum and instruction, early childhood education, educational leadership, educational technology, English as a second language, health and human performance, reading and special education. Doctoral candidates in curriculum and instruction can specialize in bilingual studies, early childhood education, educational leadership, educational technology, higher education teaching and literacy.
