Areas of Study
Undergraduate learning that makes a difference
The College of Education, Health, and Human Services (CEHHS) offers a wide variety of areas of study within undergraduate programs in health and human services and education. By providing high quality, diverse and meaningful areas of study, CEHHS assures students are able to pursue the learning and experiences that allow them to customize learning, while making deep connections and meaning.
The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) has revised Michigan’s teacher certification structure into 6 grade bands. CEHHS has submitted program proposals for our Birth through Kindergarten (B–K), Prekindergarten through Grade 3 (Pre-K–3), and Grades 3–6 grade band programs to the MDE. In addition, these same programs are working through the internal university curriculum approval process. Once approved, students will be able to apply for admission to these grade band programs starting in the Fall of 2022. Current elementary-certification students, and those admitted prior to Fall 2022, will have the opportunity to meet with an academic advisor to determine if they should remain in the current certification program or switch to a new grade band program.
