Educational Foundations


Educational Foundations (EDFN) is the education home to secondary BSE majors. We believe strongly that teachers must both know the subjects they teach and how to teach them to students. Because of this belief, we value our partnership with liberal arts departments in providing education courses, field experience, and co-advisors for our undergraduate secondary education students. This partnership also includes content specific preparation.

Educational Foundations is also home to two multidisciplinary concentrations, Educational Studies and Applied Disability Studies.
