B.A. Education Studies and Human Relations (ESHR) is a multidisciplinary major that fits those looking to enter a helping profession, but who do not want to teach in a traditional classroom. It prepares students for jobs in helping and learning professions, advanced studies in education, counseling, and more.
Two subprograms are offered to help students build a program of study that works for their goals:
Preparing students for supporting roles in a school setting, where they might work on improving policy or developing more efficient learning processes for students.
Instructing students on how to best counsel or aid those going through difficult times, such as trauma, addiction, or personal problems.
Additionally, a variety of optional informal concentration areas (ICA) are offered to suit students' individual career trajectories:
- Diversity Education
- Couple and Family
- Learning and Development
- Trauma-informed Advocacy
- Learning, Design, and Media
