Welcome to a higher class of education.
From the teachers
leading classes and the researchers
studying those classrooms, to the policymakers
who put standards into law and the administrators
who implement the policies, the University of Pittsburgh School of Education is covering education from top to bottom, inside and out, in a variety of different arenas. We’re researchers, supervisors, teachers, policymakers, and principals working in schools, boardrooms, labs, institutes, districts, and governments across the nation and the world.
The School of Education is not only listening to the needs of its students and the marketplace but also proactively working to create programs that will benefit education at all levels.
This approach has resulted in a variety of new programs, centers, and alumni successes. We have a new EdD
that allows for part-time completion in three years. Our Master of Education
(MEd) teaching degree is offered online. We established the Center for Urban Education
, which focuses its research on improving urban education in Pittsburgh and across the United States. Since 1999, seven Pitt alumni have been selected as superintendents of the year.
