Enhancing Human Potential

It's an exciting time for the College of Education and Human Sciences and for everyone involved with it!

For our students, we offer a flexible consumer affairs degree, including courses in business, economics and hospitality and allow our aviation students 20% more flying time. Our college boasts an 88% job-placement rate in our counseling and human resource development program and we host the Outdoor Learning Lab, which provides experiential learning for our early childhood education majors.

EHS currently serves about 1,900 students with a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs. We offer 19 different majors and 16 different minors and certifications within our college, which consists of the Schools of Education, Counseling and Human Resource Development and Health and Human Sciences.

Along with our college's several departments, we also operate within the West River Graduate Center. This center is a satellite facility in the beautiful Black Hills region of South Dakota that specializes in bringing graduate-level education and career-enhancement opportunities to nontraditional students and educational professionals.

Faculty and staff in EHS work to expand knowledge with outreach programs through SDSU Extension and by conducting research in fields such as financial security, mental well-being, human nutrition, physical activity and obesity prevention and transformative learning. We work to offer sustainable solutions to issues such as health promotion, disease prevention and education reform from a transdisciplinary stance.

In EHS we focus on enhancing human potential by centering on the improvement of human life and community through the promotion of mental, physical and financial health.
