The Education major prepares students for teaching licensure; to ensure depth, breadth, and mastery in their licensure areas, students majoring in Education must also major in their content licensure area (i.e., English, Math, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Art, Theater, French, German, Spanish, or Latin). The Educational Studies concentration offers students from all areas of the liberal arts an opportunity to strengthen their program of study with selected courses that focus on some feature of education. Educational Studies provides important foundational work toward achieving a number of post-baccalaureate goals including various vocations (e.g., management, arts education, coaching, environmental education, youth ministry, classroom teaching, teaching English abroad) and service opportunities (e.g., Peace Corps, Lutheran Volunteer Corps, AmeriCorps, Fulbright, etc.). Students seeking teaching licensure in ESL also pursue an Educational Studies concentration.
