For fifty years, Pace University’s School of Education has prepared students to not only meet the requirements for teaching certification, but to also be agents of change committed to student success and lifelong learning. Through small classes and early fieldwork experiences, School of Education graduates are ready to start making a difference in the world before they even graduate. At Pace University School of Education, students receive the tools they need to be successful educators from faculty who are nationally and internationally renowned for active engagement in progressive research activities. Our students begin observations the first semester of sophomore year, which is one year earlier than most schools, and we strive to provide courses in a variety of new specialty areas to improve engagement, especially for students with diverse learning styles & learning differences.
The need for talented teachers has never been greater.
Fundamentally, the mission of the School of Education is to expand upon the motto of Pace University: Opportunitas. Our vision is to accomplish significant educational reform by preparing professional educators to serve as agents for positive change. Through the service of our faculty and graduates, equipped with sound and rigorous knowledge, skills, dispositions, and practice base, we can elevate the promise of individual lives. Through this achievement, we can elevate the quality of those workplace and post-secondary educational cultures into which America’s youth must rightfully and responsibly enter.
