College of Education and Allied Studies

Cal State East Bay’s College of Education and Allied Studies prepares the teachers and leaders of tomorrow. Graduates from CEAS lead schools and school districts as teachers and counselors, school psychologists and school administrators. They organize community park and recreation programs, and manage hotels and restaurants. They become athletic trainers, physical and recreational therapists, and marriage and family therapists.

The College of Education and Allied Studies’ current fundraising priorities prepare our students for these careers and help them get there.

Kinesiology Online Learning Tools

Kinesiology Online Learning Tools are essential to today’s learning. The degree requires a significant amount of hands-on learning, and given today’s need to socially distance, that’s tougher than ever before. New software, subscriptions to documentaries, and video recording equipment are all necessities for the department to meet the students' needs.
