Located in the global powerhouse of New York City, the Teachers College (TC) at Columbia University is a diverse community of vibrant and emerging changemakers who discover, create, and break meaningful ground. While its name reflects a dedication to producing quality educators, Teachers College offers more than 120 academic programs that span our priority pillars of education, health, and psychology.

Teachers College also offers select programs within our pillars that focus on leadership, administration, and policy, which are geared toward accomplished and aspiring executives. These professionals come to Teachers College to enhance their visions of supporting meaningful learning and service environments, shaping public discourse, and affecting policy changes that benefit society.

All students—whether recent college graduates or seasoned professionals—learn through classroom discourse and hands-on experiences such as fellowships, internships, colloquia, and networking activities. With additional services available to students, such as TC NEXT (our office of career learning and planning), students can develop an action plan and engage with peers, alumni, faculty, and industry professionals in preparation for graduation and career satisfaction. These resources can lead to meaningful careers as educators, counselors, health care professionals, principals, administrators, executives, mediators, researchers, policy analysts, consultants, trainers, and public officials. And you're invited to join them.

Education programs: Make a difference
TC’s Education programs examine complex social and political processes, cultural theory, transcultural identity, sociolinguistics, and multiculturalism. They develop a broad and deep understanding of the theory, history, and philosophy of education, and students graduate fully prepared to meet New York state requirements for initial, professional, and specialized certifications. The programs provide extensive student teaching opportunities inside the classroom and across New York City—the nation’s most comprehensive and diverse school system. Our graduates are among the most highly sought-after candidates for teaching positions in New York and across the globe.

Health programs: Understand and take action
Students pursuing degrees in Health Sciences and Human Development gain essential theoretical and clinical experience from distinct and overlapping fields that include language, movement, neuroscience, and nutrition. Through theory and clinical training in our neuroscience and speech pathology labs as well as research centers and clinics, they learn to identify and address barriers imperative to physical and cognitive wellbeing. Students further their careers or embark on new ones—becoming speech pathologists, exercise physiologists, researchers, evaluation specialists, nutritionists, neuropsychologists, and occupational therapists.

Psychology programs: Link research and rigor
Psychology has been a cornerstone of TC since its founding in 1887. Emphasizing the link between research and practice, psychology at Teachers College synthesizes an enduring commitment to social justice with an insistence on rigorous scientific methods. Some students prepare for research careers in academia or industry; others work in schools or private practice. Moreover, all share a common goal: To address the educational, professional, and other psychological needs of a broad cross-section of individuals, families, organizations, schools, and communities worldwide.

Join a legacy
TC’s 90,000+ alumni build on the knowledge and experience they gained here to improve lives around the globe. They bring their insights from the field back to TC to ensure the College remains at the forefront of change and innovation. Collectively, alumni extend the College’s legacy and impact in diverse fields.
