ICE Alumni

With the nation's oldest graduate program in International and Comparative Education (ICE), Teachers College's International and Transcultural Education Department has long played a critical role in the formulation and development of international education policy and practice. The combined work of its distinguished faculty and innovative alumni make the impact of the program profound, though not always easily discernable. By offering both an International and Comparative Education and International Education Development track, the program can prepare students for future endeavors in either academia or a professional field of international education. Students have gone on to pursue careers at all levels of educational development, joining NGOs, international organizations, universities, and private and public educational institutions.

The International and Comparative Education program at Teachers College offers students a diverse and flexible means of garnering the knowledge and skills needed to enter the field as either an academic or a practitioner. It succeeds in combining classroom learning with real-world experience so that its graduates are prepared to grapple with the many challenges faced in work for educational equity and justice internationally. Graduates of the program continue to play a critical role in shaping how diverse institutions confront the mandate of Education for All and improve the educational opportunities for students at all levels both domestically and abroad.
