Education can take place in many settings besides the classroom. An education studies major at The Catholic University of America prepares you to work as an educator outside of a traditional school setting, with children, adults, or both — for example, in a museum, library, or community center, or with a non-profit organization.

The education studies major at The Catholic University of America is grounded in Catholic social justice teaching. In addition to learning practical skills, you'll also be challenged to consider social, economic, and philosophical issues in education - and think about your role in shaping the future.

Thoughtful reflection on what it means to be an educator will help you to develop an area of focus in your coursework. This focus will prepare you for a career in fields like criminal justice, media, human resources, business, community education, and many others.
