Programs in the College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services lead students to careers in teaching, criminal justice, health promotion, counseling, social services, legal assisting and related academic and leadership fields. The Teacher Education graduate program ranks in U.S. News & World Report's Top 100, and students achieve nearly 100% pass rates in state certification exams. The Arlitt Child and Family Research and Education Center, operated by the College, is one of the oldest demonstration preschools in the U.S., serving children from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

CECH's Criminal Justice Division ranks first nationally in published research by The Journal of Criminal Justice, and its PhD program ranks third by U.S. News & World Report. Bachelor and master’s degrees in Criminal Justice are also offered. The Paralegal program was named in the top 100 in the U.S. and Canada by the American Bar Association.

In 2012, The Intellectual Advancement Center, the Special Education Program, and the School of Education introduced the Transition and Access Program (TAP) at the University of Cincinnati. The program offers a 4-year, non-degree option for students with mild to moderate intellectual disabilities who want to actively engage in the full college experience, including participation in regular college classes, engaging in professional internships, and enjoying an active social life with friends. It was featured on an episode of the FOX-hit TV show Glee.
