What is educational studies: diversity, equity and inclusion?
The educational studies: equity, diversity and inclusion degree is for students committed to making a difference as teachers in elementary schools. In this four-year teaching program, you will explore what it means to be an educated, civically and globally engaged person working toward a fully inclusive, participatory democracy. You will learn how schools are organized and their links to broader social and cultural histories that are rooted in systemic inequities and asymmetrical distribution of educational resources and opportunities. Graduates of the program will be eligible for NH teacher certification in Elementary Education plus English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).
