Message from the Dean

The School of Education and Professional Studies is committed to academic excellence in teaching, guiding, and learning. Students enter Chowan as a community of learners. They are connected through internships, study abroad, community engagement, and leadership opportunities.

Because of Chowan’s intimate size and family-like atmosphere, students find that our four departments of Criminal Justice, Interdisciplinary Studies, Sport Science, and Teacher Education have professors that are accessible to them, before, during, and after class.

Criminal Justice students will gain vital skills and knowledge in criminology while evaluating the moral and ethical issues of public servants. Interdisciplinary Studies is uniquely designed to allow students the freedom to establish a specialized major that is devoted to their individual interests and needs. Students graduating from the Sport Science program are prepared to pursue career opportunities and connect their classroom knowledge with real-world experience. Teacher education is dedicated to graduate students who are equipped with instructional strategies and pedagogy capable of educating all learners n a continuously changing world.
