The Bachelor of Educational Studies (BES) is for students with interests in the scientific and scholarly study of education and/or education-related careers in non-school settings. Specific areas of interest may include learning theory, technology in education (including game design), educational and community leadership, organizational change, and policies that shape learning environments. BES coursework provides a foundation in educational theory, research, and practice that engages students in settings where they can influence change (e.g., schools; international contexts; student affairs; churches; sports, non-profit, and private organizations).

This degree maybe be completed on campus or online. This degree takes an interdisciplinary approach with flexibility to personalize a program of study based on career aspirations and interests. Alternatively, students can select this degree with an emphasis in Educational Leadership or Educational Games and Simulation Design.
