Welcome to the Department of Educational Studies!

The Department of Educational Studies serves students who wish to pursue their teaching credential or an advanced degree in curriculum and instruction. In addition, the department houses the English as a Second Language (ESL) endorsement/certificate program.

The curriculum for the teaching credential brings together courses offered in the academic areas of educational foundations (which usually includes educational history, sociology, and policy); teaching and learning; assessments; multicultural education; and educational psychology (including developmental psychology). Many of these interdisciplinary courses are field-based, with students spending time in classroom, school, and community settings.

Courses offered by the department are aligned with the state of Wyoming's Professional Education Standards. Faculty members also engage students on issues of leadership, literacy, democracy, multiculturalism/diversity, special education, and technology. Alternative forms of authentic assessment are a key aspect of departmental courses.

The department also collaborates with Elementary and Secondary Education departments to offer graduate level courses in education leading to a Maters of Arts (M.A.), Doctorate in Education (Ed.D), and a Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph.D.)  in Curriculum and Instruction.
