The College of Education

The College of Education at Penn State was established in 1923 to deepen and extend knowledge about the formation and utilization of human capabilities. It offers resident degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels as well as an extensive outreach effort aimed at continuing professional development for educators at distant locations. The College's research program is also extensive and College faculty members secured over $31.1 million in external support during the past three years from a wide range of national and state government agencies, private foundations, and corporations. The College's location within a large, research oriented, land-grant university provides numerous opportunities for studying education from multidisciplinary perspectives in the context of a university-wide commitment to making life better for all citizens.

The College houses four academic departments: Curriculum and Instruction; Education Policy Studies; Educational Psychology, Counseling, and Special Education; and Learning and Performance Systems. The departments offer seven undergraduate majors to more than 2,000 students and 11 graduate programs, under authority of the Graduate School, to nearly 1,000 students. Recent surveys rank the Penn State College of Education among the top colleges, schools, and departments of education in the United States.
