Educational Studies IDP Major or Minor

There is a growing need for people who understand how people learn and who have the skills to teach outside of schools. Students in the Educational Studies IDP pursue educational jobs outside of PreK-12 classrooms by utilizing different courses to gain expertise and skills and use them in nonprofits, Early Childhood Education, Entrepreneurship, etc. Although this degree falls within the domain of the Department of Education, it is not a licensure enabling program.

Educational Studies is available as an Individualized Degree Program (IDP) major or minor. Students need to consult with their faculty advisor if they want to take on additional coursework to turn Educational Studies into their IDP major.
