The Mission of the Graduate School of Education
Established as a separate school in 2006, the Binghamton University Graduate School of Education prepares future teachers, administrators, educational scholars and policy makers to be transformative leaders both in and out of the classroom. Through master’s and doctoral programs in teacher education, educational leadership, and educational theory and practice, we fulfill our mission to prepare caring, competent and qualified professional educators who are dedicated to their profession and to diverse learning communities.
Our faculty members are published scholars who inspire students through a comprehensive curriculum combining cutting-edge educational research and practical application. With an extensive presence in local schools, our students gain hands-on experience and the opportunity to learn from master teachers and administrators while enriching the educational experiences of the K–12 students they serve.
With generous support, the Graduate School of Education will expand our reach, building on existing master’s and doctoral programs and adding new ones in critical areas. We will increase research opportunities for our faculty and make sure a Binghamton education degree opens doors for our deserving graduates across the country. In short, we will build on our mission of educating tomorrow’s educational leaders while redefining the educational landscape.
