Educational Studies, BS

Students with an Educational Studies major can pursue careers in informal learning environments (e.g., recreational programs, zoos, museums, ecology centers) as well as a wide range of non-profit organizations and foundations. Educational Studies majors are also positioned to complete graduate or professional programs in disciplines such as educational policy, psychology, counseling, social work, communications, organizational leadership, teaching, higher education or law, among others. Students who select the major must complete the following components:

  1. The Marquette Core Curriculum (MCC).
  2. Environmental Science course: ARSC 1020, BIOL 1420, PHYS 1007 or PHYS 1009
  3. A Statistics course: MATH 1700 or SOCI 2060
  4. An additional academic major from the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences or the Diederich College of Communication.

Students who intend to complete the Educational Studies major are strongly encouraged to meet with the assistant dean of undergraduate advising and student services in the Office of Teacher Education as early as possible to avoid program delays.
