We are committed to preparing educators, researchers and leaders to successfully respond to and meet today’s challenges in education and health. Our college is consistently ranked among the best public schools of education in the country and was established in 1891 as the School of Pedagogy. We are home to five academic departments and 10 research centers focused on health, education and sport; 14 offices that support our faculty, staff and students; and the University of Texas High School.

We champion diversity and social justice — in our faculty, staff, students, research, curricula and service to the community — as it creates a rich atmosphere for teaching, learning and inquiry. Our programs are centered on hands-on, research-driven approaches, and students at all levels are encouraged to participate in research projects alongside our expert faculty.


Undergraduate majors and minors prepare students to become leaders in a variety of educational fields, including teaching, therapy, coaching, academia, research and more. Students become certified in their field through intensive coursework and hands-on experiences, and many choose to further their education with a graduate program that expands their expertise.
