Are you interested in working with children or youth but not interested in earning teacher certification? Then consider an Educational Studies major or minor!

An Educational Studies major or minor allows a student to find a career path outside of the traditional classroom.
What can I do with a major or minor in Educational Studies?
  • Work with youth organizations, child care and after school programs, youth ministry, youth services, and educational institutions such as museums. Consider adding a related disciplinary major or minor.
  • Attend graduate school programs in related fields for which education is an appropriate field of study but for which teacher certification is not required, such as school psychology, counseling, or educational policy. Check potential graduate programs for requirements.
  • Attend graduate school in any field and benefit from the experience and knowledge of teaching and learning when seeking teaching assistantship positions. Consider a second disciplinary major that you are interested in pursuing further.
