Originally attracting working professionals from the regional area either seeking initial certification to teach or advanced training in specialized fields, the School of Education and Human Services now attracts a rich blend of graduate students that includes recent graduates of undergraduate programs and international students. We limit class sizes and emphasize the importance of close faculty-student relationships.
The unit supports academic excellence through curricula designed to help graduate students to (a) acquire the essential skills of analytical thought and self-expression, (b) gain and integrate knowledge in various disciplines, (c) acquire an understanding of other cultures, (d) develop an awareness of the various facets of moral and ethical problems, (e) achieve a high degree of personal fulfillment, and (f) improve skills in pursuing independent study of educational issues within school communities. Classes are taught at both the Emmitsburg and Frederick campuses.
