Graduate Programs in the Division of Education and Human Services are designed for both currently certified teachers looking to add a certification or enhance their skills, and for those who wish to enter the field of education and become a certified teacher. We also offer programs for those working in education related fields that do not require certification. Through course work, students will acquire a wide range of knowledge and skills designed to prepare them to become instructional educators and leaders who know how to orchestrate assessment, diversity, technique, and technology.
