Education Studies

Education Studies takes a multidisciplinary, liberal arts approach to the field of education while focusing on the study of human learning and development, the history of education, teaching, school reform, and education policy. Concentrators choose an area of emphasis, either History/Policy or Human Development. History/Policy provides the historical underpinnings and intellectual skills for students to think critically about education issues in a number of settings. In the Human Development area, students learn about psychological, social, and cultural processes in a variety of contexts, including schools, families, peer groups, and neighborhoods, particularly in urban settings. Additionally, the Department offers teacher certification programs in elementary and secondary education. Luther Spoehr is the Director of Undergraduate Studies, and advisor to all seniors and to juniors on the History/Policy track. Yoko Yamamoto advises all sophomores and juniors on the Human Development track. 

Here's what concentrators from the classes of 2012, 2013, and 2014, reported they were doing in their first year after graduation.
