The College of Education and Human Development provides leadership, professional development and research to advance education at all levels and address concerns and changing needs of schools, children and families.

Undergraduate majors are offered in Elementary and Secondary Education, Kinesiology and Physical Education, and Child Development and Family Relations with an array of academic specialization options such as Athletic Training and Early Childhood Education. All majors emphasize a diverse liberal arts background and highly relevant professional training.

Educator preparation programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and approved by the Maine Department of Education.  A partnership with area PreK-12 schools provides a Professional Development School model and realistic teaching and learning settings for students and faculty.  In addition, a campus nursery school and kindergarten serves as a lab school where Early Childhood and Education students can observe and learn about the behaviors of young children.

The Human Development curriculum meets the standards and requirements of the National Council of Family Relations’ Certified Family Life Educator designation, which enables graduates to quickly complete the application process for Certified Family Life Educator status.

The curriculum-and clinical-based Athletic Training program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).  These academic and broad clinical experiences are required for eligibility for the National Athletic Trainers Association Board of Certification exam, the professional credential required by most employers.
