Education is at the center of social and personal life. Its study is necessarily interdisciplinary. We offer a variety of courses, each one with its own distinct intellectual challenge, but all seeking to connect different points of view, whether the course is focused on urban education, school reform, diversity, policy, history, research, child welfare, literacy, language, play, or learning to teach. We invite students to try a single course (first-year seminars and many other different first courses are possible) and to consider one of the two minors we offer, the Teaching and Learning Studies and Education Studies minors.
