The Educational Studies program is designed for those interested in the general study of education, such as:
- Teachers interested in obtaining a master's degree in education but who work in a subject area other than the certification areas offered by Binghamton University's Graduate School of Education (i.e., other than childhood and early childhood education, special education, literacy, or adolescence education in English, foreign language, mathematics, science, or social studies)
- Professionals working in schools in non-teaching positions or those in community colleges
- Human service agencies, or other settings dealing with students or schools, who would benefit from a greater understanding of educational foundations
- Teachers and educators from other countries who desire graduate study in the field of education but who are not interested in teacher certification.
