Undergraduate Programs

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education prepares distinguished educators for the state of New Jersey, the country, and many foreign countries. Our programs emphasize critical thinking and analytical skills for problem solving in urban and other school settings. We are dedicated to graduating knowledgeable, capable, and articulate educators who are reflective about their own teaching. We are also committed to the belief that education is transformative and empowering and that social justice can be best accomplished through an educated citizenry.
