Undergraduate Admissions & Programs

Whether you are looking to pursue a career as a teacher, school counselor, or anything else within the world of education, one of the School of Education’s 12 majors will prepare you to inspire people, promote health and wellness, and impact policy. On-campus training laboratories, research facilities, and volunteer opportunities give you a chance to build your professional portfolio throughout your time at Syracuse.

Right now, we would like nothing more than to welcome you to campus or travel to your area. However, following New York State recommendations related to large gatherings and in an abundance of care for your family and ours, we have made the decision to suspend all campus visits, student-led tours and admissions programming, and off-campus events.

Why the School of Education at Syracuse?

  • 98% of our graduates are employed or in graduate school within 6 months of graduation (2019 graduate outcomes report).
  • You’ll be a part of a carefully selected class of under 200 first year and transfer students, so you’ll enjoy small classes, personal advising, and close relationships with faculty and staff. But you’ll also have access to the extensive benefits of the broader Syracuse support system: once you graduate, you’ll join a network of over 250,000 accomplished alumni.
  • You will be part of a community that has a commitment to inclusion and diversity. The School of Education pioneered the inclusion movement in the United States, making it possible for all learners to participate in typical classrooms.
  • Hands on experience from the start – you’ll take classes in your major and often be in the classroom your first year, an opportunity not found in many education programs. Experiences include a diverse range of settings, in urban, suburban, and rural schools; multiculturalism and diversity are important issues discussed throughout the education curriculum.
  • Broaden your perspective and enhance your resume with Syracuse Abroad experiences. Consistently ranked one of the top international education providers in the U.S., Syracuse offers more than 100 programs in 60 countries. School of Education students have opportunities to study for a semester at one of Syracuse’s centers or partner programs, or participate in a School of Education short-term signature program for 1-6 weeks. Through the Himan Brown Fellowship, School of Education students are also eligible for exclusive funding to support study abroad experiences.
  • Specialized certification and career services support is provided for all School of Education students in pursuit of their post-graduation goals, including workshops on certification, resumes, and interviews; recruitment sessions; career fairs; and one-on-one personalized job-exploration assistance.
