For more than 120 years, Teachers College – the largest and most comprehensive graduate and professional school of education in the United States – has educated nearly 100,000 people from around the world. With a tradition of innovation and insight, Teachers College embraces three fields of study: education, psychology, and health.
But Teachers College is more than its name implies. Students prepare for careers in all aspects of understanding, managing, and enhancing human potential . Engaging students on countless levels inside the classroom and out, Teachers College faculty and administration help students tailor their programs of study to meet their unique needs and interests.
The Teachers College spirit of academic inquiry is embodied by current faculty working in the tradition of such distinguished predecessors as John Dewey, Edward Lee Thorndike, and Maxine Greene in defining new fields of study. In addition to examining the ways education in the United States and around the world is affected by larger economic, social, and political contexts Teachers College faculty help students to realize their full potential as learners, to make informed decisions, and to attain the best possible quality of life.
Teachers College is located in New York City and is an affiliate of Columbia University.
