Welcome to the School of Education
We are a great School of Education. Yes, we are consistently rated in the Top 50 Graduate Schools of Education in the country. But what sets us apart, in our own view, is the vision, dedication and excellence of our students, and the enthusiasm they exude when they talk about the school when they are in it, and when they become our alumni.

The School offers a Bachelor’s of Arts (B.A.) in education with a specialization in early childhood education. We also offer a Minor in Education.
The School offers graduate programs leading to:
- the Master of Education (M.Ed.) and
- Doctor of Education (Ed.D.)
- the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) is granted to those who successfully complete the American Psychological Association-accredited School Psychology Program.
- The Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS).
Graduate programs in the School provide opportunities for advanced study and research in education and foster the development of innovative responses to challenges in the field of education. Our programs can be designed to meet licensure guidelines, licensing requirements, professional association recommendations, School and University requirements, and individual student goals.
As a research-oriented Land-Grant institution, the School of Education recognizes its responsibility to offer two types of graduate academic programs: programs that prepare educational scholars to further educational theory, policy, and research; and programs that prepare educational practitioners for roles in public education.
