Educational Foundations

Educational Foundations course work in the Mary Frances Early College of Education helps students develop an understanding of the educational needs of youth who live in increasingly diverse social, cultural, political, and linguistic contexts. Course work provides an opportunity to support aspiring educational leaders and other school personnel to become change agents in the diverse communities in which their students live and learn. Students focus on developing tools of inquiry that enable students to participate in a democratic society by reflecting on the past to inform the present and future. Courses are offered across the college and center on

  • History of Education
