Office of the Dean

Welcome to the Pittsburg State University College of Education community! I invite you to explore all that Pittsburg State offers as a leader among schools of education.

The College of Education has been a pillar of the university for over 100 years. Living up to our mission and vision statements, we provide a student-centered learning environment that prepares students to be competent, caring and committed in their future careers. The college is broader in scope than the name reflects. There are three departments in the college:

  • Health, Human Performance and Recreation
  • Psychology and Counseling
  • Teaching and Leadership

If you are looking for affordable, small classes, personalized attention, and professors committed to academic excellence, then Pittsburg State University is a great choice for your continued education. Our faculty is comprised of scholar-practitioners who develop knowledge that is valuable to real-world settings. They collaborate with schools, community service organizations, government organizations and national/international colleagues.

In addition to the academic programs, Pittsburg State University has quality student support services provided by a highly dedicated staff. If you need financial assistance, tutoring, career and/or personal counseling or want to become involved with sports, clubs, and student government, the support staff will be there to guide and advise you.

Whether you are a prospective student, an educational professional looking to expand your insights and skills, or an alumnus returning to learn more and tap into the Gorilla network, we welcome your interest and look forward to connecting with you.
