The Campbell University School of Education, formally established in December of 1985, is an integral part of the University community. It provides coherence and administrative integrity to Professional Education and two other service-oriented professional programs: Psychology and Social Work. Fully consistent with the mission of the University, the School of Education’s mission is to provide a developmental sequence of educational experiences that blends the theoretical, the professional, and the practical for those who plan to work primarily in rural settings. The first part of the sequence prepares students for entry into Teaching, Social Work, and applied fields of Psychology.
Students with undergraduate degrees in education and related areas may continue their studies through the Master’s level. The overall goal of the advanced programs is to provide a progressively more sophisticated sequence of opportunities to develop theoretical insights, specialized knowledge and skills, and an understanding of the best professional practices in teaching, counseling, and school administration.
