Fordham University's Graduate School of Education Is a Leader in Education Master's Programs

For more than 85 years, Fordham University's distinguished Graduate School of Education, has prepared students for careers in teaching, psychological and educational services, and educational leadership. A leading force in education graduate schools, GSE offers over 40 master's and doctoral degrees, professional diploma programs, and advanced certificate programs at its campuses in New York City's Lincoln Center and Westchester County.

Teaching a Multi-Cultural, Multi-Racial Population

Fordham University is located in the heart of New York City. Education is put to the test every day in the world's most ethnically-diverse, international city where teachers struggle with the mounting challenges of reaching and teaching classrooms of students from dramatically different cultural and economic backgrounds. Many of these students face additional disadvantages such as poverty, literacy, and English as a 2nd language. These same challenges are being faced in classrooms across the United States.

The Fordham University Graduate School of Education is a leader in the development of the knowledge and skills needed by teachers, counselors, psychologists, administrators, and other educators to prepare a diverse population of students for satisfying and productive lives in the 21st century.

Graduate School of Education: Teaching and Interdisciplinary Research Programs

The teaching programs at the Graduate School of Education prepare and develop teachers at the initial and advanced levels who are committed to professional and school excellence, reflective practice, and lifelong learning. All programs emphasize concern for students' language and culture, respect for the multiple voices of the urban classroom, and attention to all children, from the most academically talented to those struggling with literacy and basic education.

A variety of innovative education master's programs address every specialty from "Early Childhood and Childhood Education" and "Adolescent Education" (including mathematics and science) to "Special Education," "Multi-Lingual Education," "Literacy," and "Curriculum and Teaching."

Some degrees are integrated and provide dual certification, and extension and advanced certificate programs are available for educators to augment initial certification. Graduate studies integrate in-depth training in teaching theory with extensive fieldwork and cutting-edge research opportunities. Scholarships are available for some programs.

The new Ph.D. program in Contemporary Learning and Interdisciplinary Research at GSE

The Fordham University Graduate School of Education facilitates interdisciplinary discourse and provides a model of collaboration amongst scholars.

Students in CLAIR gain expertise in 1 of 4 content specialization areas: "Contemporary Literacies;" "Learning Sciences;" "Language, Culture, and Equity;" and "Special Education."

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.

Graduate School of Education: Educational Leadership and Counseling and School Psychology

The Educational Leadership programs at GSE include master's, Ph.D., and Ed.D. programs to prepare future administrators, supervisors, principals, superintendents, and other leaders in public and non-public schools and church settings.
