To accomplish this mission the Department provides programs in Adult Learning and Leadership, Education Leadership, Nurse Executive Education, Higher and Postsecondary Education, and Social-Organizational Psychology.
If you plan to work in a state other than New York, Teachers College has not made a determination if our programs meet the educational requirements for certification or professional licensure in any other state, Washington DC or Puerto Rico. We recommend that you review the state’s licensing board or teacher certification website for that state’s qualifications. The Office of Teacher Education will complete any necessary forms and/or letters for out-of-state certification on the completion of your approved teacher preparation program.
