The Ruth S. Ammon School of Education prepares students to enter the professional education community with pride.  Its range of undergraduate and graduate programs offers concentrations in many specialized areas of teaching and leadership. Through courses and fieldwork, students learn how to combine educational theories and techniques to improve classroom learning. At a time when many schools of education have eliminated these disciplines, The Ruth S. Ammon School of Education remains steadfast in encouraging students to explore the arts, and engaging students in dialogue about the economic, social, political, gender, and ethnic inequalities that exist in today’s society.
