Graduate Programs in CEHS

The Emma Eccles Jones College of Education and Human Services is home to eight departments and is committed to quality teaching, research, and outreach. The college is an extraordinary place where students can become outstanding teachers, researchers, and human services professionals.

Graduate and undergraduate programs are strengthened by an on-campus elementary laboratory school and five stand-alone centers. These offer services to the community and provide students with real-world service, clinical, and research opportunities. We are committed to providing the best learning opportunities and educational research in the state of Utah and the nation.
