Miami's campus in the fall

The College of Education, Health and Society (EHS) is home to many unique programs.

All EHS programs are built on a strong foundation of hands-on field experiences, internships, and research using innovative technologies. EHS offers undergraduate majors in teacher education, education studies, social work, special education, nutrition, kinesiology, public health, and sport leadership and management.


EDUCATION

EHS houses three departments centered around education: the Department of Educational Leadership, Department of Educational Psychology and the Department of Teacher Education. Our programs prepare educators for licensure in the state of Ohio and students can choose from Primary Education (PK-5), Middle Childhood Education (grades 4-9), Adolescent and Young Adult Education (7-12), Foreign Language Education (PK-12), and Inclusive Special Education (K-12). In addition to our licensure programs we offer an Education Studies major (non-licensure) for those who desire a career in education outside the classroom.

Why Teach?

Trey Clements“I’ve always wanted to lead, to make a difference, and to be a positive role model for those who may not have one. In the end, I want to leave this world knowing that I brightened someone else’s future. There’s no better way to do that than by being a teacher...”
