UNK began preparing teachers in 1905 and the reputation of the College of Education as the premiere institution in Nebraska for future teachers is more true today than ever!  Our five departments prepare talented young people from around Nebraska and the region to become athletic trainers; family scientists; early childhood, elementary, middle or high school teachers as well as offer opportunities in recreation and event management, exercise science, health and physical education, sports management, and communication disorders.

In addition, our graduate programs offer pathways to careers in speech-language pathology, clinical mental health counseling, school psychology, counseling, and higher education student affairs.
