“We learn by doing to transform communities.” That is the hallmark of students’ educational experience across MSU’s College of Education, Health & Human Development. Whether student teachers or leaders in classrooms and schools across Montana or students working in Towne’s Harvest Garden as part of their sustainable foods and bioenergy systems program, EHHD students put into practice what they have learned in the classroom.

This commitment to experiential learning prepares EHHD graduates for relevant and needed occupations in Montana’s workforce and beyond the state’s borders.

Our students and graduates:

In 2021-22, EHHD students provided over 210,000 hours of volunteer effort in schools, after school programs, counseling sessions, dietetic internships, and more.

Quite simply, students and graduates of the College of Education, Health & Human Development have an unshakeable focus on enriching human well-being.

We are excited you are interested in our programs and opportunities we take to combine “Mountains and Minds.” The breathtaking environment of Bozeman, Montana and beyond serves as our classroom. This is where we learn by doing every day. We invite you to learn alongside us.
