Overview

Our Educational Studies program from the St. Thomas Aquinas College is part theory (thinking) and part practice (doing). As an educational studies major, you’ll learn about childhood and adolescent behavior and how to educate learners with differing abilities. You’ll also strengthen your communication and problem-solving skills.

You’ll take your general education, education, and elective courses. You’ll also choose a concentration in English, science, math, history, social sciences, Spanish, psychology, or interdisciplinary studies. 

Upon graduation, you might decide that your work with children sparked an interest in becoming a teacher. As an educational studies graduate, you will be well prepared to transition to our Masters of Science in Teaching (MST) program and receive 12 credits of advanced standing toward your degree.
