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, select one of three tracks to study more specifically: early childhood, adolescence, or adult/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.

Foundational Core

The Foundational Core is the key to Taylor’s total education. These classes will give you a big-picture view of how your calling connects with God's purpose for your life, engaging with ideas that will demonstrate how God has given you certain talents and skills to bring healing to the world. Each student who completes the Foundational Core emerges as a well-versed individual, equipped with critical thinking skills, a lifelong love of learning, and an appreciation for God's creation.
