Welcome to the Department

  • Welcome Message

    The Department of Arts & Humanities welcomes you to Teachers College, Columbia University.

    The department, which encompasses nine academic programs, views the study of education as broad and vital. Here, intellectual and creative ideas and practices extend beyond the traditional concerns of schooling. Thus, each program shares a concern with the learner's construction of knowledge, the art and methods of teaching, the realities of the contemporary classroom, the relationship of schools to their communities, and the underlying philosophies of school reform.
