Congratulations Class of 2016!

Over Memorial Day weekend, 362 students graduated from UD’s College of Education and Human Development, with undergraduate degrees, associate of arts, CLSC certifications, master’s degrees and doctorates.

Our graduates have demonstrated a commitment to making a difference in the lives of children and families, locally and around the world. They have conducted research, provided valuable services to the community and embraced a gained a global perspective to teaching and learning.

Each took their own path to reach this achievement–overcoming  challenges, expanding their knowledge, gaining confidence in their abilities.

This year, we graduated our first cohort enrolled in our online master’s in teacher leadership. Seventeen students received a degree in this two-year, fully online program, providing them the skills to transform from teachers to leaders in their school and guide their colleagues to become stronger educators.

Our education students now engage in two semesters of student teaching, using the coteaching model, which provided them classroom experience in both their fields of teaching certification.

Because of our rigorous curriculum and extensive service-learning opportunities, many of our graduates have already secured jobs or been accepted into prestigious graduate schools.
