The advantage of the liberal arts as preparation for teaching is simply this: you will have a good, solid, general background and a well-developed foundation in education. Our Educational Studies major is for students who wish to prepare for a career in education in elementary or secondary schools, or in the broader community.
Kappa (knowledge) Delta (duty) Pi (power), an international honor society in education, was founded by William Bagley at the University of Illinois in 1911 to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. Since its founding, KDP has inducted women and men who advance scholarship, leadership, and service in education.
