Department of Teaching, Learning and Leadership

Teacher with StudentThe Department of Teaching, Learning and Leadership offers programs on both the undergraduate and graduate level, all leading to NYS certification. We prepare new teachers and education leaders who are just starting out in their field, and we help practicing professionals enhance their careers with additional specializations. All of our programs emphasize hands-on learning in a multicultural context. Classes are small, fostering an atmosphere of inquiry and reflection. Fieldwork, internships and student teaching placements are in partner schools especially selected for excellence and diversity. With our emphasis on practice, you will be out in the schools – observing, learning, and doing – from the very beginning. And you’ll graduate eligible for teaching certification – and ready to get a job!
