You are making an important decision to be part of the development of the UAE educational or social support system. When you make the decision to major in Education, you are making a commitment to the UAE and to its legacy as a distinguished country in the world. In the words of the father of the UAE, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, "the prosperity that we have witnessed has taught us to build our country with education and knowledge and nurture generations of educated men and women." The current President of the UAE, Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan also explains that "Educating the individual is this country's most valuable investment. It represents the foundation for progress and development." Those who will major in Social Work or Psychology and Human Services will support and nurture the individual, families, and communities for a healthy society.
