Educational Studies Department

The Division of Educational Studies (DES) is scheduled to close Summer 2017. Recognizing that the number of Educational Studies (EDS) courses available will be decreasing each year as this closing date approaches, students are no longer permitted to declare new majors or minors in Educational Studies. However, students who express an interest in the field of education, in most cases, will continue to be able to enroll in Educational Studies coursework through Summer 2017. Please contact either the Director of Undergraduate Studies or the Director of DES if you wish to express your interest educational studies, at which time you will be assigned an EDS adviser and be provided with further information.  Ongoing advisement is critical during preregistration each semester since a permission number is required to enroll in most EDS courses.

The Division of Educational Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of education with a special emphasis on urban and comparative issues. In particular, the Division seeks to provide students with a foundation for understanding the social and cultural context in which education occurs and for interpreting the complex relationships among education, the individual, and society.

Honors Program

Qualified students are encouraged to become involved in the division's Honors Program. Admission to the Honors Program depends on minimum criteria established by the college and invitation by division faculty.  See Division website (www.des.emory.edu).

For more information, see Honors Program | Academic Policies & Regulations.

Study Abroad

Students in Educational Studies are encouraged to spend on semester, usually during the junior year, abroad in program coordinated by Emory's CIPA office.  With the approval of the student's Division advisor, some credit toward the major or minor may be earned.

For more information, see Study Abroad.

Advising

When declaring a major or minor, a student is assigned a faculty advisor, and an academic file is maintained for academic advisement documentation. Students are expected to have appointments with the advisor at least once a semester for program planning and course scheduling. Official correspondence with each student is sent by email from Division staff, instructors, and faculty advisors.

Independent Research and Study

If they wish, majors may conference with faculty who may supervise or sponsor an independent study (EDS 497R: Directed Study: Special Topic)or specialized literature research (EDS 497R: Supervised Reading). Varied credit may be earned toward the 16 elective hours of the major depending on the size, depth or breadth of the study.
