Educational Studies

The Educational Studies program develops knowledge and skills essential for work with children and families. The minor is an excellent preparation for graduate study in education or counseling, and the major leads to entry-level positions in early childhood education and other social service areas.

Language, Literacy and Leadership 

Programs in Language, Literacy and Leadership provide licensed teachers with knowledge and skills essential for effective teaching and leadership in a diverse, multilingual society. Flexible online and face-to-face course schedules enable teachers to earn graduate degrees while working full-time, as well as one or more of the following endorsements: Bilingual/ESL, LBSI, principal, reading teacher, reading specialist, and teacher leader.

Endorsements for Licensed Teachers

The College of Education offers endorsement only options for students who already hold an initial teaching or school service personnel license. Successful completion of the endorsement coursework fulfills the State of Illinois requirements and prepares students to take the accompanying licensure exams.
