College of Education, Department of Education and Human Services
Iacocca Hall, Mountaintop Campus

The College of Education consists of a single department, the Department of Education and Human Services and with six distinct academic programs. In addition, the college supports a set of interrelated programs to include Centennial School, Center for Promoting Research to Practice (CPRP), Office of Global Online Training and Degrees, and the Office of Teacher Certification.

The Department of Education and Human Services consists of the following five programs: Counseling Psychology, Educational Leadership, School Psychology, Special Education and Teaching, Learning and Technology (teacher education and instructional technology/design).

The overarching focus of these programs is to prepare students for leadership roles in evidence based, cross-disciplinary inquiry that shapes educational practices nationally and internationally.

While the College of Education prepares individuals for leadership roles in school systems, we also prepare individuals for a variety of positions in business and industry, healthcare, private practice, international development, and community-based organizations.

We embrace the philosophy that a quality education experience should provide the instruction, resources, and experience necessary to create a new type of educator, one who understands the nature of learning, the role of new knowledge, values collaboration and teamwork, and embraces societal challenges.

Our alums provide additional avenues of opportunity for our students and ground-breaking research through generous gifts to the College of Education. This ensures that the Lehigh experience will be available for future promising educators and professionals who will make their own difference in the lives of so many.

"All the experiences have given me the knowledge and skills I need to effectively work alongside families to help children of all ages be successful at school academically, emotionally, and socially."
