Why Study Education at SNHU?

The Curriculum

In Southern New Hampshire University's School of Education, we base our classes, our programs and our degrees on our Conceptual Frameworks:

Theory into Practice: The School of Education is committed to preparing students who turn theory into practice through application of learned strategies and innovative technologies. We recognize the complex dynamics of the human experience and will strive to be sensitive and responsive to the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs of those we serve. 

Reflective Practitioners: The School of Education is committed to developing reflective practitioners who are self-aware, intellectually curious, and dedicated to the improvement of practice through continuous professional growth. We aspire to model respect for diversity, critical thinking, and service to community.

Leadership & Professionalism: The School of Education is committed to developing leadership and professionalism. We serve the community and promote innovative advocacy through collaboration and a shared vision of success.

School of Arts & Sciences

The arts and sciences provide us with the fundamental purpose of education: to learn how to live well.  Courses in the arts and sciences may bring graduates high salaries, increased esteem, ultimate self-confidence, and sound values, but the most important result of an arts and sciences education is capacity-building within the individual to engage challenge, cope with uncertainty, and contribute to improving the human condition.  Study in the arts and sciences serves as a tool of curiosity, conscience, and community.

The School of Arts & Sciences builds a curriculum that addresses how to manage a complex world and to live effectively in it.  Educating for the future is problem-solving for critical, capacious public issues.  As the world's carrying capacity diminishes, its caring capacity is in greater demand, and no individual escapes the call for civic engagement.  Through interdisciplinary work in humanities, science, fine arts, technology, socio-political and moral inquiry, students prepare for a civic role that is as central to their individual success as it is to societal sustainability.

The School of Arts & Sciences opens the way to many paths of life.  Whatever the choice, teaching and learning in the arts and sciences enable the student to try the new and dare the different.  The innovative mind and creativity of an arts and sciences major form the highest recommendation for today's workplace.

Why Study Arts & Sciences at SNHU?

Our faculty will make every effort to help you learn. They make teaching their No. 1 priority. Our full- and part-time faculty members go the extra mile in everything they do. They are academically gifted, well-traveled and knowledgeable within their disciplines and across diverse fields of study.
