Education majors enjoy teaching and working in educational settings. They may work in child care centers, assist in classrooms, or become teachers.

Education majors take coursework on the science and art of teaching. Students also learn how to teach diverse student populations while integrating technology and multicultural-based lessons.  Education majors also observe and even teach in the classroom.
