The School of Education & Human Services

The School of Education and Human Services (SEHS) is comprised of the Education Department, Social Work Department, and the Early Childhood Development Center. 

SEHS does more than teach students how to become social workers and educators, but prepares them with engaged learning experiences to give them first-hand practice before entering the job market. From field experiences for social workers to student teaching opportunities for future educators, SEHS goes beyond the classroom.
