Winthrop University: B.S. in Educational Studies

B.S. in Educational Studies

The Educational Studies major is designed to provide a flexible pathway for students interested in education, but who may have aspirations for certification through the M.A.T. program or who are considering settings that do not require teacher certification such as community programs and museums.


The Educational Studies major does not result in teacher certification and instead provides a gateway to certification at the graduate level. Students interested in whether this is an appropriate pathway should contact the program advisors to establish a one-on-one advising session. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions page.
