Historical Note

The San Diego College for Women and College for Men each had teacher credentialing programs in secondary education. The College for Woman also had elementary and special education credentialing programs. The College for Men and College for Women education departments merged in 1969 to form the Department of Education. In September 1970, the Department of Education moved to the fifth floor of DeSales Hall, the main administrative building on campus. In 1973, the School of Education offered Masters' programs in Elementary Education, Secondary Education, Special Education, Counselor Education, Educational Psychology, and a Master of Arts in Teaching. In November 1984, the newly remodeled Harmon Hall was dedicated as the new home of the School of Education. By 1987, the Division of Teacher and Undergraduate Education and the Division of Special Education combined into the Division of Teacher and Special Education. Also, the Marriage, Family and Child Counseling graduate program was developed. The School of Education became the School of Leadership and Education Sciences (SOLES) in 2005.
More information on the School of Education and its history can be found in the University of San Diego Accreditation reports,  University of San Diego Course Catalogs,  University of San Diego News  and within the News Print Media Coverage records.
