About School of Education

 

Lifelong learning, student success, and practical experience. It’s what a School of Education degree is made of.

For more than forty years, Pace University’s School of Education has prepared students to not only meet the requirements for teaching certification, but also be agents of change committed to student success and lifelong learning. Through small classes and opportunities for student teaching, School of Education graduates are ready to start making a difference in the world before they even graduate.
