Education and psychology are closely and beautifully related - how can someone teach without understanding the learner, motivation, emotion, intelligence, and human development? The field of education concerns the art and science of teaching, that is, putting people in just the right situations for them to learn a core body of knowledge, or a crucial set of skills, always monitoring and assessing them, and adjusting the conditions to assure the best chance to succeed.
Our education programs are strong and respected by schools and universities throughout the tri-state area. Our students go on to become teachers, researchers, and educational leaders. The Department offers an AA program in Liberal Arts, an AAS program for educational practitioners, and a teacher Aide certificate. The education programs attract over five hundred students majoring in education each year.
