The School of Education & Human Services

The School of Education and Human Services (SEHS) is comprised of the Education Department, the Social Work Department, the Center for Educator Preparation, and Early Childhood Community Programs—which include the Early Childhood Development Center and other programs.

SEHS does more than teach students how to become social workers and educators. We prepare 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 to transform lives and communities.
