Education Studies students engage with the local community in participatory research
Ed Studies students completed the Getting Ahead curriculum (part of the Transformers Initiative), as part of their long-term research project led by Professor Alexander aimed at understanding the structure of poverty in Greencastle and the limits and possibilities of community-based anti-poverty initiatives.
The four-year non-licensure education studies program focuses on education as a discipline within the liberal arts. Students investigate topics such as the sociology of education, the political economy of education systems, and theories (critical and traditional) of learning and development as well as engage in cultural, historical and philosophical studies of education.
The major culminates with students conducting authentic research via a two-semester capstone experience.
