Located in the global powerhouse of New York City, Teachers College, 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 that are geared toward both accomplished and aspiring executives. These professionals come to Teachers College to enhance their visions for shaping and supporting meaningful learning and service environments, to shape public discourse, and to affect 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, healthcare professionals, principals, administrators, executives, mediators, researchers, policy analysts, consultants, trainers and public officials. You are 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 they graduate fully prepared to meet New York state requirements for initial, professional and specialized certifications. The programs provide extensive student teaching opportunities inside and outside the classroom across New York City—the nation’s most comprehensive and diverse school system—and 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 theoretical and clinical training in our neuroscience and speech pathology labs, 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 Teachers College since its founding in 1887. Emphasizing the link between research and practice, psychology at Teachers College synthesizes an abiding 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 at Teachers College to improve lives around the globe. They, in turn, bring their insights from the field back to the College to ensure the college remains at the forefront of change and innovation. Collectively, alumni extend the College’s legacy and impact in diverse fields.
