About the College

Pittsburg State University was founded with education at its heart.  Originally the Auxiliary Manual Training Normal School in 1903 and later the Kansas State Teachers College in 1913, Pittsburg State has developed caring, committed professionals throughout the years.

The College of Education is made up of three departments:

  • Health, Human Performance and Recreation
  • Psychology and Counseling
  • Teaching and Leadership
