Portrait of Dean Valerie RutledgeWelcome to the College of Health, Education and Professional Studies at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. We offer a diverse and vibrant group of programs which provide students with the information and skills needed to pursue challenging and rewarding careers in a range of professions.  Our candidates have the opportunity to join with faculty as they build new knowledge and engage fully with a dynamic city and a widening world so that they can become the healthcare providers, educators, interior designers, social workers, and other professionals who make a difference in the world in which we live.

Please take the time to read about our faculty and departments, our programs, and the opportunities we offer our students.  As you browse through the information on the websites, questions may occur to you. If they are not answered here, please contact departmental offices or the Dean’s Office for more details. We look forward to the opportunity to advise and inform you further as we put “Students First!”
