New program requirements for the major were submitted to Connecticut College faculty for review in Spring 2023. If approved, the new requirements will be in place beginning Fall 2023. This means that any student declaring a major in Educational Studies in Fall 2023 would need to complete the new requirements. For students who have already declared an Educational Studies major, you will be held to the catalog requirements for the academic year in which you declared; however, you may elect to complete the new requirements instead of the old requirements if you wish.
