Studies in Education

Edgewood College was founded as a teacher's college in 1927. With 90 years of experience, we continue to excel in the area of teacher preparation. As a student in the School of Education, you will benefit from a wide range of experiences both in and out of the classroom. Your professors and advisors will help you determine your licensing interests, identify the school setting that best suits your strengths and develop a network of professional contacts.  

The Studies in Education major offers you the opportunity to study education without committing to a licensing program. Students who enter a licensing program and decide later not to complete the licensing program may also use this major to complete their degree. 


My professors at Edgewood College challenged me to be the best student and person that I could be, both in and out of the classroom. This prepared me to become a true asset to my department where I became a leader. My professors’ leadership, understanding and compassion resonated with me and with the decisions that I make every day– so much that I maintain those friendships even today.
