School of Education and Human Development
Become an educator capable of making an impact and create change in your community. In the School of Education and Human Development, students are challenged to embrace the concept of cura personalis — care for the whole person, in serving students, patients, clients and communities.
Our curriculum embraces social justice and immerses you in the local community, inspiring you to serve and uplift individuals and families. In many cases, you will have the opportunity to participate in fieldwork and observation during your first semester, a unique educational model that provides hands-on experience right away. With Saint Joseph’s location in one of America’s largest cities, you’ll have opportunities for service learning, internships, student teaching and clinical practice in nearby school districts and medical centers, and will work closely with faculty mentors to prepare for a career.
