School of Education, Counseling & Human Development
Wenona Hall 108, Box 507

The mission of the School of Education, Counseling, and Human Development is to provide high quality educational experiences to learners across the education and human science fields, and to generate knowledge of human behavior, learning science, and interpersonal relationships.

The School of Education, Counseling, and Human Development creates a unique niche across programs in education and human science fields that emphasizes developmental sciences and the science of learning. By more fully integrating human development and education, we will be able to better ground teacher education in the context of developmental and cultural relevance, and we will further strengthen our offerings in human development by grounding them in the science of learning. Both areas underscore the importance of how learning across the lifespan develops in diverse learners. Diverse here references not only differences in cognitive and learning styles, but differences in culture, socioeconomic status, and lifestyle.

The School of Education, Counseling and Human Development is one of the few public university departments in South Dakota that delivers programs at the main campus in Brookings, USD - Sioux Falls, BHSU - Rapid City, and online.
