Education and Educational Services (EES) Certificate Program

The Education and Educational Services (EES) Certificate Program provides an organized program of study for undergraduate students interested in the many aspects of education, but who choose not to major in Education during their undergraduate career. Students interested in child development, neuroscience and the process of learning, or education-related policies, for example, may wish to complement their current major with this substantive program in Education.

Education is one of the hotly contested subjects in today's politics & society.
The EES Certificate program was designed to address a variety of key issues related to education, as well as national changes in teacher education. This program contributes to the cultivation of informed and engaged citizens and enriches public dialogue around critical issues in educational policy and practice.

Upon completing the EES Certificate program, students will:
​Understand individual processes of teaching and learning
- Understand the social context of education and educational institutions
- Understand educational decisions including the selection of concepts taught, as well as research and policy prescriptions
