The Oklahoma A&M Board of Regents approved creating the College of Education and Human Sciences, combining the College of Education, Health and Aviation and the College of Human Sciences at Oklahoma State University.
The two colleges began working toward a consolidated administrative structure in 2019. The new College of Education and Human Sciences is home to nearly 4,000 students in 35 undergraduate and 64 graduate degree programs.
Combining the colleges intends to bring their strengths together and offer many benefits including making the college the:
- Largest preparer of certified teachers in Oklahoma.
- Largest collection of health programs on the Stillwater campus with roughly one-third (34 percent) of students pursuing an academic degree related to mental, physical or relational health.
- Nationally ranked programs in early childhood education, educational technology, fashion design and production and merchandising.
- A robust research portfolio that includes human development across the lifespan, K-12 and STEM education, nutrition and disease prevention, learning and technology, human environments and pilots and aerospace safety.
- Nationally respected aviation education program that meets growing industry demand by preparing professional pilots and is one of only 18 schools in the U.S. to offer graduate degree programs.
- Established Cooperative Extension programs and the opportunity to explore expansion within the areas of education and human performance to serve the state.
