The Bachelor of Science Lifelong Learning tracks prepare students for employment in a variety of non-traditional instructional settings where requirements such as content knowledge, an understanding of how children and adults learn, and strong interpersonal and communication skills, coupled with the added proficiency in areas such as marketing, management, event planning, and cognitive, physical and emotional development are needed. For undergraduate students pursuing educational careers outside of traditional schools, the School of Teacher Education offers a non-certification lifelong learning track that is available in Elementary Education, Exceptional Student Education, and Secondary Education/K-12 Education.
The program tracks provide a unique opportunity to develop essential knowledge and skills not only in specific content areas but also in one or more specializations through experiential learning or internship experiences with our many partner organizations.
The development of multiple skill sets combined with experiential learning and internship experiences strongly prepares graduates for employment in professional educational roles working with the public. The program prepares graduates for employment in a broad spectrum of professional opportunities include museums, science centers, theaters, zoos, theme parks, youth camps, and business and industry settings.
The Bachelor of Science Lifelong Learning track is available in Elementary Education, Exceptional Student Education, K-12 Education and Secondary Education.
