Teachers College, Columbia University

Campus Description

Teachers College, Columbia University began a century ago with a radical mission of preparing a new kind of professional education. In the years since, it has been a leader in defining the work of educators. Our work at Teachers College today, as it was yesterday, is to create the programs, carry out the research, and develop the models that will guide educators and the institutions they serve. A third of our students are in teachers preparation programs. The rest are planning on careers in administration, policy, research, and teaching in fields ranging across education, health, and psychology. New York City offers our students a wealth of informed educational opportunities. Students can take advantage of the theaters, museums, conerts, lectures and discussion groups. The streets of Morningside Height are usually filled with residents, tourists, and students frequenting local restaurants, browsing through bookstores, and visiting historic sites.
