As a student in the Educational Studies program, you will critically examine the role of education in a global society; evaluate the impact of educational programs on diverse populations; demonstrate an enhanced understanding of how social injustices such as poverty, under-resourced schools, environmental issues, and immigration can affect student achievement. You will also learn how to apply principles of learner motivation in evaluating learning environments and reflect on the importance of social embeddedness in community-based settings.
This program will prepare students interested in post-graduate degrees in education or education-related fields. This degree does not lead to teacher certification but will prepare you to serve children, youths, and adults outside traditional classrooms.
