Students interested in the Education Studies Concentration must take four full courses in a variety of liberal arts areas that explore educational foundations, issues, and pedagogical strategies. Students must also complete two experiential components—academic year and or summer internships, practica, or projects during winter term—that connect their pedagogical and conceptual understandings to local and off-campus educational environments. The Education Studies Concentration Committee advises students regarding course sections, internships, graduate schools, and potential employment.
