The Department of Education connects your passion for the arts with your commitment to the education and well-being of children and youth. We offer an undergraduate major in Early Childhood Education with emphasis on the Reggio Emilia approach, as well as Master of Arts in Teaching programs in both Elementary Education and Visual Arts Education.

We view the arts as an essential component of child development and an expansive channel for assessing and enriching learning. As an Education graduate, you’ll have the tools to apply your theory and research-based craft in schools, social service agencies, community organizations and other venues that provide youth education. From pre-kindergarten through grade 12, our graduates are changing the world—one classroom at a time.
