I choose this major because of my background growing up with a conductive hearing loss and the passion of always wanting to be a teacher. Bloomsburg has prepared me to be the best teacher I can be before going out into the real world.
You already have the heart. Let us show you how to inspire.
The mission of the College of Education is to empower graduates to promote healthy human development, nourish creative inquiry, facilitate opportunities for liberatory experiences, and to effectively advocate for equitable outcomes for all the students, teachers, and clients with whom they work.
Greetings from the College of Education (COE) at Bloomsburg University! We are a community committed to the growth of our students, our colleagues, and ourselves. Our mission of educating the next generation of teachers is grounded in BU’s history as a teacher's college. In recent years that mission has expanded into new courses of study like American Sign Language/English interpreting, school counseling, college student affairs, and child life —all focused on increasing the potential for people to flourish.
To encourage growth in our community, we constantly seek ways to support each other—from developing new approaches to student advising to establishing an Equity in Education Committee. Our COE faculty and staff are passionate and caring, and every day demonstrate creative persistence in their work as advisors, instructors, and colleagues.
Our community is also defined by its commitment to excellence. We realize that the educators, interpreters, counselors, and administrators we prepare will immediately impact the students, clients, and teachers with whom they will work. We aim to ensure that skills and knowledge included in our programs are supported by the most recent research, and we work to demonstrate for our students a mindset of continuous growth.
We also realize that context matters. Ours is an inclusive community that seeks to identify and eliminate inequities that are obstacles to growth. We believe that by interacting with people with diverse experiences and perspectives, we are all enriched.
Regardless of your reason for visiting today, we hope you’ll take some time to explore some of our 30+ degrees, minors, certificates, and endorsements. Should you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
