Undergraduate Programs

Both of our undergraduate degree programs prepare students to serve urban communities in a variety of ways:

  • BA Urban Education – Elementary Education prepares students to become licensed teachers that lead classrooms in urban elementary (up to grades 1-8) schools.
  • BA Human Development and Learning prepares students to become educators outside of the classroom, working with diverse groups of learners at any age: from early childhood to adolescence to adulthood.

*Application deadlines extended due to COVID-19

We have reopened the fall 2020 undergraduate applications for both first-year and transfer applicants. Understanding that plans for local students may be disrupted, we are an option for families that would now consider staying local. We do not have a fixed application deadline date, but we are Common Application exclusive for first-year students and that system will be taken offline for updates in late July.
