In addition to its role in providing degree programs, CAH is responsible for many of the course offerings of the general education programs as well as extensive service coursework for the entire university. The College also plays a major role in Central's teacher education programs, offering Bachelor's and Master's degrees for students preparing to be secondary teachers and providing coursework in educational foundations and discipline-specific methods for teacher education majors.
Building on a legacy of teaching excellence, college faculty are engaged in research, creative activities and service, involving students in the scholarship and practical applications of their various academic specializations, while making important contributions to the intellectual tradition and to society at large.
