The College of Education (CED) prepares students for professional careers in the field of public and private education through baccalaureate, certificate, credential and Master’s programs offered in three departments: Liberal Studies, Teacher Education, and Educational Psychology, Administration and Counseling.

The College of Education's primary purpose is to create and nurture a learning and teaching community committed to excellence in education. We fulfill our purpose by preparing professionals to be socially responsible leaders, engaging in research and scholarly activity which informs and improves practice, valuing diversity as we work to achieve common goals, serving and collaborating with schools, agencies, the community and each other, and engaging in an inclusive process for planning, communicating, working, and assessing progress toward our goals.

The College provides undergraduate and graduate studies in education. It offers specific curricula focusing on the preparation of personnel for teaching and educational service in the pre-school, elementary, middle and high schools, community colleges, adult programs, and other educational agencies. In addition to two certificate programs and a variety of teaching and service credentials, the College offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies, a Master of Arts in Education degree with various options, Master of Science degrees in special education and counseling, and an Ed.D. degree in educational administration and leadership through a joint doctoral program with the University of California, Irvine. Descriptions that include prerequisites and requirements for each credential, certificate, and degree program are listed in this catalog in the department that houses the particular program.

College programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC).
