A history of excellence
“Over the past 130 years, Steinhardt faculty, students, alumni, and leaders have demonstrated a dedication not only to academic excellence but to societal impact," says Steinhardt Dean Jack H. Knott. "I believe we are uniquely positioned here at Steinhardt to drive these impacts. With our many interdisciplinary programs, we will provide innovative solutions in the transformation that will occur as we eventually emerge into a post-COVID world—solutions across education especially, but also in media, health care, therapy, psychology, applied statistics, and the arts and humanities.” That excellence shows with the School ranking #6 among the “Best Graduate Schools for Education,” according to U.S. News & World Report.
