Few colleges in the United States have more experience or success in preparing teachers than the College of Education. For over 150 years our graduates are some of the most highly sought after educational personnel in Michigan, across the country, and around the world. We are a leading school of education for individuals seeking to gain the practical know-how to make a difference in their jobs. We do this by supporting academic excellence and success among our students and providing them with lots of real-world experiences from their first semester on campus. We do this by using our wide range of partnerships with schools, agencies, clinics, communities, and organizations who share in our desire to provide practical experiences for our students and effective support for the individuals they serve.

EMU's College of Education prepares outstanding educators, clinicians, leaders, and scholars in urban, global and diverse educational and community settings. As a future educator, counselor, or speech language clinician you will discover a comprehensive range of programs for today and tomorrow - bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees (with many on-line graduate courses and programs) and an extensive array of non-degree and certification learning experiences.

Our faculty and programs are widely known for balancing excellence in teaching with hands-on experiences, and applied scholarship to prepare you with relevant real-world skills and awareness.
