Welcome to the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences at Nicholls State University.

The faculty, staff, and leaders of the College of Education and Behavioral Sciences are committed to the development of highly qualified professionals who will be reflective-decision makers in their respective fields. Our faculty members offer standards-based curricula, while still maintaining personal connections. We work diligently to provide candidates quality experiences within the classroom and in field experiences.

Our conceptual framework guides our programs and focuses on the development of professionals who are responsible leaders engaged in professional practice. Through openness, transformation and responsibility, our candidates develop and apply their professional knowledge and skills as they move through their respective programs.

The College of Education and Behavioral Sciences is the “educational provider” for two academic departments: Teacher Education and Psychology. Several undergraduate and graduate programs are offered in each department. Most of our programs are nationally recognized through the National Council on the Accreditation of Teacher Education, National Association of School Psychologists, and the American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences.

Two of our current challenges are to offer additional classes and/or programs online and to re-engage with professional development with our school districts and pertinent stakeholders.
