Leading Change

Education and Youth Studies is built on the idea that social change is rooted in people. Whether through professional practice as a certified teacher in fields, or as a developing researcher, or social service provider, you will learn to be responsive to people’s needs.

Grounded in ideals of social justice, Education and Youth Studies interrogates systems of oppression and how they limit the empowerment of people to have agency over their lives. This means that the departments students and faculty are committed to lifelong learning, professional expertise, creative and mindful action, and the pursuit of intellectual excellence.
