Bachelor of Science in Educational Studies Initial Program - Does Not Lead to Teacher Licensure


Grand Canyon University's Bachelor of Science in Educational Studies develops educators for opportunities outside of the traditional classroom. An educational studies degree provides foundational skills that focus on developing and applying fundamental pedagogical practices to a variety of settings. The bachelor's degree in educational studies also includes study of educational psychology, literacy, diversity, instructional technology, communications and classroom management. Teaching skills are a cornerstone for a variety of career opportunities. Traditionally, students graduating with an educational studies degree have been interested in education-related jobs that do not require traditional teacher certifications, including parks and recreation, non-profits, workplace training and community programs. After understanding the fundamentals of teaching and learning, students develop skills to effectively teach and train in diverse learning environments.
