Bachelor's in Education and Youth Studies, BAE

The BA in Education and Youth Studies prepares undergraduates to support the learning and socio-emotional needs of school-age youth (ages 5-16) and their families in roles that do not require teacher licensure, such as teaching assistant, coordinator of tutoring and student support specialist. This field-based program prepares every candidate to work democratically with diverse children and families, including those with special needs and second language backgrounds. It leads to employment credentials that are recognized by schools and non-profit community organizations, and is excellent preparation for careers in counseling, human services and non-profit public administration.
