Coursework in the College of Education and Human Development is infused with diverse field experiences and internships. Study abroad experiences and exchange opportunities are strongly encouraged.
The College of Education and Human Development offers teacher education majors the opportunity to complete their student teaching internship in a variety of settings. Selected students are placed in an international school in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, or in Houston, Texas.
Along with university opportunities to study abroad, the College of Education and Human Development offers a semester abroad program at Keele University in England.
Students selecting the Apparel Merchandising and Product Development major may choose to spend one year studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) in New York City. Students who apply and are accepted at F.I.T. select one of two programs of study: Advertising and Marketing Communications, or Textile Development and Marketing.
The Sport Management/Recreation and Tourism (SMRT) and Kinesiology (KNS) divisions of the school of Human Movement, Sport, and Leisure Studies have exchange agreements with the University of Brighton and with the Chelsea School of Physical Education, Sports Science, Dance, and Leisure at East Sussex, England. Additional opportunities are available through the SMRT division at Southern Cross University in Lismore, Australia (see Education abroad).
Students interested in exploring these special opportunities should direct initial inquiries to the appropriate academic department.
