College of Education & Human Services
The College of Education and Human Services is comprised of collaborative, community-minded professionals who provide rigorous, best practices education to prepare students to meet the social, education, leadership, health and human service needs of our world. The College includes Speech-Language-Hearing Sciences, the School of Teaching and Learning, and the School of Social Work. What they share is a set of core principles that combine service to others and to the community with a high standard of professional excellence.
The Early Education Center located on MSUM’s campus is a great way to experience an early education environment just steps away from your classrooms. You’ll have the opportunity to interact with children ages 16 months to 5 years old as they explore and learn about themselves and participate in activities designed to promote their emotional, social and physical growth.
Elementary inclusive and early childhood education students will have over 200 hours of classroom experience including student teaching by the time they graduate. MSUM's Field Experience is committed to providing exceptional early and ongoing field experiences in education for teacher candidates. We collaborate with school partners in planning, implementing, and assessing each experience.
The Speech Language Hearing Clinic is unique to the area and provides a wide range of services for area children and adults with communication difficulties.
The MSUM School of Social Work is a member of the Child Welfare Consortium. Funds have been allocated for students planning to work in a child welfare setting upon graduation.
The Auditory Processing Disorders Clinic offers assessment for auditory processing disorders.
The Regional Assistive Technology Center provides augmentative and alternative communication systems to clients.
The College of Education & Human Services seeks student advisory board membership each semester to provide a student perspective and voice to the dean of the college. Student input and feedback is essential to represent and advocate for students’ interests and concerns.
