The Bryn Mawr/Haverford Education Studies major centers teaching and learning as fundamental to life and growth, and fundamentally connected to struggles for understanding, liberation, and justice.
The Bi-College Education Studies major is built around four mutually-informing pursuits: teacher preparation; the interdisciplinary study of learning; the investigation of the politics of schooling; and students' growth as reflective facilitators, learners, researchers.
Students who complete one of the Education major options are prepared to collaborate, act, research, reflect, and work to challenge and transform oppressive educational systems into joyful and just ones. In keeping with the philosophy of the program, each course includes a field experience—from two hours each week to full-time practice teaching—through which students learn to integrate academic and experiential knowledge.
