Creating Leaders for a Better Tomorrow, Today

Welcome to the College of Education, Health, and Society (EHS), where students learn how to shape the future of our society through education, public health, kinesiology, nutrition, social work, sports, and dedicated service for the greater good.

Undergraduate Studies

Our majors guide EHS scholars through a liberal arts education — fundamental to Miami's Plan — with immersive focus on each major's core principles and content. Hands-on experience is central to the EHS education, so your learning will not be confined to lecture halls but expanded to labs, clinics, classrooms, fields, public facilities, and beyond.

We emphasize experiential learning to help you build the soft skills that you need to tackle challenges in these fields that help heal the human spirit: confidence, compassion, empathy, flexibility, and grace under pressure.
