The College of Education and Human Studies houses a relatively diverse grouping of academic disciplines, including the School of Education and the Departments of Social Work, Physical Education-Wellness-Sport and Continuing Studies. The College has eleven undergraduate majors along with the non-traditional degree completion majors administered by the Department of Continuing Studies in conjunction with other university departments. The College also offers five graduate degrees, including the M.A.Ed., M.Ed., Ed.S., Ed.D, and M.S.W. Three of the programs offered in the College are nationally accredited, including Teacher Education (NCATE), Social Work, (CSWE), and Athletic Training (CAAHEP). Graduate programs are offered on the Jackson, Germantown and Hendersonville campuses.
Connecting these disciplines is a commitment to the implications and applications of the Great Commandment: a sincere desire to apply knowledge and improve the lives of people in the name and through the love of Christ.
