About the GSE
Positioned within one of the highest-ranked, most diverse public research universities in the country and led by top experts in the field, the Rutgers Graduate School of Education has served as a vehicle for championing revolutionary change in the field of education for nearly 100 years. Our instructional programs, grounded in empirical research and developed with the goal of immersing students in opportunities for active, multimodal application of coursework, prepare graduates to be effective education practitioners, transformative education leaders, and accomplished educational researchers. The rich cultural, linguistic, and social diversity of the New Jersey school system serves as a backdrop for our pre-service teachers, where they train, study, and contribute to, as they develop the foundational knowledge and practical skills needed to become agents for positive change, both locally and in educational settings around the world. Through this process, one involving rigorous examination and applied practice, the Graduate School of Education at Rutgers University and the collective work of our student body, faculty, community partners, and alumni, contribute to greater expansion of knowledge and overarching mission to Advance Excellence and Equity in Education.
