Welcome to the Program in English Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. We offer eight different tracks that cover three different doctoral degrees and five different master’s degrees. While each of our degrees overlaps significantly with others, each one also has unique features in the learning opportunities it affords its students and in the students whose needs it serves.
Taken together, our highly diverse student body across our eight degree programs constitute a community of graduate students that we believe to be unmatched in the English-speaking world for the talent and accomplishments exhibited by these students in their various roles as writers and readers, as prospective English teachers, as veteran classroom practitioners, as teacher-educators, and as developing researchers.
If you are interested in applying to any of our eight degree programs and have questions about those programs or your qualifications to enter them, don’t hesitate to contact any of our faculty members or our student program assistant. We are all happy to discuss our Program with prospective applicants. You can learn about our faculty and how to contact us individually by looking at the faculty profiles on this website. To contact our student Program Assistant send an email message with your questions and concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll be looking forward to hearing from you.
