The Department of Educational Studies is one of the five fields of studies under the organizational structure of the recently established College of Arts and Sciences, UUM. Associate Professor Dr. Abdul Malek Abdul Karim is the inaugural Chair of the Department.

With Educational Foundations and Language Education, Curriculum and Instruction, and Values Education as its three core emphases, the Department offers both undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The Bachelor of Education with Honors [B.Ed.(Hons)] degree programs are designed to produce specialist graduate teachers in one of the following fields, namely,  Business Administration, Accounting, and Information Technology. Students are also required to take professional courses in Education and to select one other minor area of study such as TESL, Interactive Multimedia, Mathematics, Moral Education, or Bahasa Malaysia.
