Greetings from the Dean
Thank you for visiting the College of Education and Social Sciences website. I want to encourage you to explore the department of your choice by reading the descriptions of the majors offered. Extend your visual tour of the department to include the faculty that has been specifically chosen to deliver a quality education integrated through faith. Faculty members within the college are either current practioners within their discipline or have had experience in their related fields before coming to SBU.
Each department’s webpage has a section for alumni that highlights the graduates’ experiences while attending SBU, along with their achievements resulting from their earned degree from our institution. Our light in the world is the graduate who fulfills the university's mission of being a servant leader in a global society. It is the ultimate goal of this college to prepare students for careers in people-oriented and service-minded professions, while encouraging them to embody Christlike character.
Our challenge to our students is to strive for academic excellence. We provide theoretical and practical experiences necessary for each student to fully envelope the scope of their chosen degree and to prepare them for employment within society or further study in their field. Building upon the liberal arts foundation of the university, the College of Education and Social Sciences strives to produce graduates who have a broad understanding of current issues and trends, along with the relational capacity to communicate effectively within society’s realms.
Browse, explore, inquire, and contemplate the possibilities of your future at SBU. Allow God to speak to your heart about your future plans and direct you to find the degree that will honor His goal in your life. Please contact me directly, or any one of the faculty listed within your desired plan of study, with your questions. I encourage you to make personal contact with a faculty member to get a better understanding of your intended degree. We, at the College of Education and Social Sciences, want to impact your future.
