Academics at Teachers College

The College has ten departments that comprise more than 60 major academic programs. Roughly 30 percent of students are concentrated in teacher education programs. Affiliated with Columbia University, and standing on the border of northern Manhattan, the College continues to work toward social change for the better by focusing on education in and out of the classroom and across the human lifespan. Through its main emphases -- health, education, leadership and psychology -- TC prepares educators, psychologists, policy makers and planners for the challenges they will face in their careers.
