Educational Studies (EDST)
Assistant Professor Lightfoot, Coordinator
The educational studies program is the interdisciplinary examination of education as institution and as enterprise. It is designed specifically for those students concerned with the interpretation, appraisal and reform of our society’s educational arrangements; the program is not designed to prepare school teachers or other school personnel. Students will be provided with the opportunity to view education from philosophical, historical, sociological, political, anthropological and psychological perspectives.
Foundations of Education (FDED)
Professor Barnes, Director
A number of undergraduate courses are available in foundations of education, all of which may be taken as electives or as part of the requirements for the educational studies minor. For a description of the minor program, see educational studies.
