Accreditations & Affiliations
As a student enrolled in the School of Education, you benefit from programs that meet the very highest level of standards in curriculum and instruction emphasizing best practices in teaching, counseling, school psychology and leadership. Our teacher preparation program, encompassing all our many specializations, is accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC), dedicated to the preparation of competent, caring and qualified educators. In addition, we are affiliated with numerous New York City public schools, from pre-school to secondary levels, as well as many other educational and mental health facilities and institutions. Our students participate in a wide variety of fieldwork, student teaching and internship experiences, many leading to permanent positions. By working directly in schools, classrooms and mental health facilities, alongside professionals in the field, they gain the knowledge and the skills that ground them in the latest strategies and practices in their area of study, while establishing a valuable network of contacts.
