The mission of the Department of Education and Counseling is twofold:
In addition to demonstrating competence within their chosen academic discipline, as well as fulfilling the College of Arts and Sciences’ core curriculum requirements, students participate in a wide variety of classroom field experiences. Such experiences are carefully selected and supervised and always appropriate to both the academic and professional competence of the students.
