Our doctoral programs in the Department of Teaching and Learning will prepare you for a variety of leading roles in education, research, and policy across the United States and throughout the world. Built on NYU Steinhardt’s foundation as the oldest graduate school of pedagogy in the United States founded in 1890 the department s programs draw on four sources of learning:
- The professional experience that students bring to their studies. Students are encouraged to reflect on this practice and use it to ground their study of theory and research.
- A rich set of courses, seminars, and independent learning experiences available to doctoral students in the Department of Teaching and Learning; the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development; and other schools at New York University.
- The mentorship available to doctoral students in teaching, research, and program development. The department is home to distinguished teacher preparation programs, to numerous projects serving the continuing professional education of teachers, and to an array of research projects.
- An intellectually focused, supportive community of professors, researchers, and peers that provides an incomparable degree of guidance and support to doctoral students. Under the direction of a faculty adviser, each student fashions a unique program of study.
