Department of Educational & Clinical Studies
The Department of Educational and Clinical Studies is designed and dedicated to prepare professionals for specialized services in schools, community agencies, and higher education settings. Our undergraduate and graduate students participate in coursework and clinical experiences that contain a solid theoretical and practical knowledge base in the areas of research design and implementation, teaching, and the provision of mandated services at the community, state, and national level. The faculty produces new knowledge concerning critical educational and clinical issues through original research and scholarly inquiry. We promote and embrace the concept of cultural diversity and we affirm our commitment to the ethical standards of our respective disciplines. The department will maintain professional accreditation in Counseling, Early Childhood, English Language Learner Programs, and Special Education. Through external funding (national and state grants), the creation of sustainable research labs, and publication of our research in ranked scholarly journals, department faculty contribute to the scientifically based literature across all the professional areas represented in the department.

Effective Spring 2012, the College of Education will no longer require EDU 210-Nevada School Law as a program requirement. HOWEVER, the Nevada Department of Education DOES require Nevada School Law for licensure. Students will now have the OPTION to either take EDU 210 (2cr), which we expect will continue to be offered for elective credits, or take the equivalent test-out exam. Information about this exam can be found at http://www.unr.edu/educ/el/nvlaw/. For those students on a non-licensure program, this requirement is no longer necessary. You may still enroll in EDU 210 for elective credits.
**Please keep in mind, should you take the test-out option instead of EDU 210, you may need to make up those 2 credits with electives to reach 124.**If you have any questions, please contact the College of Education Advising & Field Placement Center at 702-895-1537, or stop by CEB 221.
