The Bachelor of Educational Studies prepares students for education-related careers. This degree is to render the field of education available to students who wish to engage in the study of education as a scholarly discipline without the requirement of preparing to engage in the professional practice of education in PK-12 schools. The Bachelor of Educational Studies is for students with interests in the scientific and scholarly study of education and/or education-related careers in non-school settings. The College of Education will not recommend certification to teach in the public schools on the bases of this degree. The Bachelor of Educational Studies may be completed on campus or online. Students interested in this degree on campus may complete an individualized major course of study developed with an advisor from the office of Advising Services. Students interested in the online BES degree, may complete an individualized major course of study in collaboration with the program director.
