In addition, the Department of Developmental Studies provides support for undergraduate students to succeed and excel in their chosen majors, and they help
students design tailored associate’s and bachelor’s degrees in general studies.
Regardless of the program students choose, the college enables them to acquire theoretical, practical, and technological knowledge and skills required to become outstanding professionals. Faculty members are teacher-scholars who are dedicated to excellence
in the classroom and continued research in their fields of study.
The College of Education and Communications majors all receive extensive experiential learning opportunities. Undergraduate educator preparation majors receive early field experiences prior to student teaching, and the Educator Preparation Office collaborates
with school districts to develop Professional Development School and other partnerships.
Speech-language pathology and audiology majors experience simulated learning in conjunction with students in other majors on campus (e.g., nursing, food and nutrition) and they obtain clinical hours with actual patients in on-campus and off-campus clinics.
Communications media majors can choose from a number of curriculum tracks and have access to the campus radio station and television station as well as labs for graphics and multimedia, digital photography, and audio production.
The college supports six
centers and clinics that provide service to the community and offer supervised training venues for our students. Our faculty members are teacher-scholars
who are dedicated to excellence in the classroom and continued research in their fields of study.
