Every Day You Educate

The University of Washington's Education, Communities and Organizations (ECO) degree believes teaching and learning happens not only within the formal classroom, but also across a host of professions such as youth development, policy reform, business, health care and in a variety of other organizations serving communities.

Curriculum in the ECO major prepares students to use content knowledge and skills in human development, equity studies, learning across contexts and organizational change when working with communities and organizations to achieve their goals.
