In collaboration with Emmanuel graduate, Kierstin Giunco ’17, Associated Professor of Education Christine Leighton and current student Kayla Balthazar '20 are working with local elementary students to deepen reading engagement and comprehension.
Education is a rich and varied field that extends beyond the field of classroom instruction.
The skills honed by trained educators—communication, leadership, conflict resolution, collaboration, adaptability and patience—are in high demand across fields, as are the characteristics of an engaging and inspiring presence, a lifelong love of learning and a desire to determine and exchange best practices.
For students interested in a broader impact on the education industry, a degree in educational studies will prepare you for in-demand and influential roles in curriculum design and development, school administration and management, and educational policy at the local, state and federal government levels. Outside of education, these sought-after skills can be applied to training and development roles and human resources functions at companies and organizations of all sizes and in any industry.
