A student celebrates post graduation

Real-world Ready

At Manchester, we believe the best education is gained through real-world experiences, we call this experiential learning. Our students benefit from extensive hands-on learning opportunities, like our Education majors who gain classroom teaching experience as early as their first year.

Transition to Teaching

Built for those who already have obtained their undergraduate degree with 2 enrollment options for added flexibility.

About the College

Our rich programs offer rigorous curriculums, while underscoring the importance of social and cultural awareness to develop our students as informed and insightful teachers, communicators and change makers. From our renowned Education programs to our many social science offerings, Manchester combines challenging training with the small, supportive community needed to cultivate effective leaders.

Meet the Dean

Dean of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Judd Case leads the academic, programmatic, managerial and fiscal responsibilities for the college of Arts and Humanities. He provides guidance to the faculty and recruitment efforts to hire new faculty and staff for all of the academic programs within the college. Dr. Case brings a range of administrative experience to the role.

Our college deans run the gamut of experience, academic background and interests. Collectively, they hold degrees in communications, higher education management, psychology, pharmacy and law. They’ve worked as professors, lawyers and college presidents. And they’re experts in areas such as program development, business law, bioethics, popular culture and rock music. Our deans are truly representative of the broad range of passions and possibilities that are the essence of a Manchester education.

“I want to be a professor and do my own research, kind of like what the people here have inspired me to do.”
