Welcome to the College of Education, Health, and Human Studies. Our college has a strong legacy of preparing students for careers in all fields related to the mind, body, and spirit. Three hallmarks of our college are applied learning, technology, and excellence.
First, we have seven centers in the college and partnerships at hundreds more to ensure our students have ample opportunity to apply their knowledge in real-world experiences and connect their classroom experiences to experiential learning.
Technology has changed practically every career path in the last decade, and our programs are no different. We know when you start your job, you’ll be asked to use technology, so we want you to learn on that technology. Whether in our EDvolution Center, in nursing labs, or in the human performance laboratory, you’ll be using technology all as part of your curriculum.
Finally, excellence. You’d expect me to promote our programs. But the proof is really in our accreditations, in our placement rates, in our students’ licensure pass rates, and in our honors such as our education program being named an Apple Distinguished School. We work hard to make your education of the highest quality and have been recognized for doing so.
I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our programs and other opportunities. We have accomplished faculty who are looking forward to collaborating with you to meet your educational goals.
