The College of Education at TCU is 140 years strong and is recognized as an exemplary educator preparation program. As you peruse our web site you will read about the many national awards we have received for our outstanding teacher and leadership programs.

As a student in the College of Education you will experience engaged, innovative learning in small classes taught by world-class faculty. You will practice education in diverse settings including public and private schools, as well as community agencies and informal learning environments like the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, the Fort Worth Zoo and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas. You will also have the opportunity to study international education through our study abroad initiatives.

As an alumnus of the College of Education we hope you will join us for our many events and professional development opportunities through our centers and institutes. Our graduates are teaching and leading throughout the region and the world. You will read some of their stories here.

We are proud of our programs and the accomplishments of our students and faculty. I invite you to explore our web site, follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and visit us to meet our outstanding students, faculty and staff.
