Graduate School of Education

The Fordham University Graduate School of Education (GSE) offers master's, doctoral, and certificate programs in teaching, educational leadership, counseling and school psychology, and interdisciplinary research. Located in the heart of New York City, Fordham GSE incorporates the city and its diverse community into its curriculum, research, and fieldwork. GSE is committed to social justice and multiculturalism, and works to improve the lives of all people, regardless of race, class, socioeconomic status, and background. GSE believes that all individuals have the right to superior educational and psychological services.

Teacher Education

Teacher Education at GSE includes initial and advanced certification programs as well as non-certification programs designed for those seeking to become teachers for the first time and certified teachers looking to expand their expertise. Programs cover early childhood, childhood, adolescent, and special education, in addition to curriculum design, TESOL, bilingual education, and literacy.

Educational Leadership

Educational Leadership programs are designed for those looking to become school leaders and administrators. The curricula cover historical and contemporary ideologies and blend theory and practice to produce confident and nimble leaders who are capable of solving educational problems at the micro and macro levels. Within the administration and supervision degrees, students in the department can specialize in general, urban, or Catholic/nonpublic school education.

Counseling and School Psychology

Counseling and School Psychology programs are based on the scientist-practitioner model and educate professionals to be able to integrate theories of counseling, human development, career counseling, assessment, group counseling, family counseling, multicultural counseling, developmental disorders, research methods, program development and evaluation, and ethics into their work. Programs are available at the master's level in mental health counseling and school counseling, at the professional diploma level in school psychology and bilingual school psychology, and at the doctoral level in counseling psychology and school psychology.

Interdisciplinary Research

The Interdisciplinary Research program at GSE offers an education research doctorate called Contemporary Learning and Interdisciplinary Research (CLAIR). Graduates of the program are prepared for a variety of roles, including instructional leaders, teacher educators, program evaluators, educational researchers, academics, diversity trainers/multicultural educators, and professionals who work in industries that design educational materials, curriculum, and assessments.

Studying in New York City

As one of the most diverse cities in the world, New York gives Fordham GSE students opportunities to work with many different populations in schools, districts, hospitals, clinics, community organizations, and other settings.

Fordham's Lincoln Center campus is centrally located, with Broadway a block to the east and Central Park not much farther. Nearly every great thing you can imagine about living in New York is right at your doorstep: museums, restaurants, music, and more.
