Educational Studies Major

Investing in the Future

The Educational Studies major prepares you to explore your passions for working with learners. Because you will not obtain a teaching license through this degree, you will graduate equipped to work with students in settings like alternative schools, preschools, camps, guidance counseling, and more.

Through school field experiences, practicums, and education conferences, you will learn how to invest your life into researching and implementing better educational practices for future generations.

Putting it into Practice

Completing teaching practicums at a school, youth-related ministries, or other education-related workplaces will give you hands-on experience with children under the guidance of professionals.

During your time at Taylor, you will broaden your studies and gain knowledge through courses focusing on early childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and family. Our education courses provide insight into children’s psychology and the history of learning and education. Other courses focus on analyzing closely-directed research on youth learning techniques and social issues’ effects on children’s social and mental development.
