It’s my pleasure to welcome you to Touro College’s Graduate School of Education (GSE).

With an outstanding faculty who teach in both online and traditional classroom settings, GSE prepares its graduates to be highly competent and pedagogically skilled professionals.  Over the past decade, we have invested in state of the art technology, more online instructional options, and smaller classes for our student body.  Our goal is to make certain that our graduates are not just good teachers and school leaders, but actually the best teachers and school leaders needed to maximize achievement for preK-12 students. 

GSE is a recognized leader in offering quality education to diverse populations.  It also has a long history of being a successful gateway for employment.  As evidenced by recent data, GSE provides a significant number of teachers and educational leaders to school districts in the New York metropolitan area, including the New York City Department of Education.

We believe now is the time to start a new conversation and to develop new strategies for helping young children succeed academically. We hope you’ll join us in improving the constantly changing world of education.

The Graduate School of Education (GSE) is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
