Curriculum and Instruction


The Department of Curriculum and Instruction is home to numerous faculty and staff members dedicated to providing students with engaging and meaningful classes for future educators. We offer Childhood Education, Early Childhood Education, Childhood Inclusive Education, and Early Childhood/Childhood Education programs at the undergraduate level, leading to initial certification in these areas. We are also home to one of the largest graduate programs on campus with over 100 students enrolled in the MSEd. in Curriculum and Instruction program. Our field-based classes within the department allow students to experience what it really means to be an educator in today's world, while having the chance to work with local 'experts' on a professional level. In addition, our faculty are committed to continually expanding their knowledge through research and professional development opportunities.
