Johns Hopkins School of Education

The Johns Hopkins School of Education is one of nine academic divisions of the Johns Hopkins University. The school is committed to attracting the most talented and diverse individuals into the fields of education, counseling and public safety. Established as a separate school in 2007, its origins can be traced back to the 1909 founding of Johns Hopkins’ College Courses for Teachers, later renamed College for Teachers. Ranked first in the nation among graduate schools of education for 2015 by U. S. News & World Report, the School is working to transform the nation’s educational system through an interdisciplinary approach that combines research and instruction to create evidence-based models of instruction in teaching, administration, leadership and program and policy development. The School’s goal is for its students to have the most innovate tools and effective approaches to advance learning. Program offerings, including both online and face-to-face, range from initial licensure master’s degrees for those entering the teaching profession to advanced doctoral level research designed to prepare future scholars to address preK – 12 policies and practice challenges from early childhood to the adult learner.

The School’s three centers – the Center for Research and Reform in Education, the Center for Social Organization of Schools, and the Center for Technology in Education – are home to some of the nation’s most recognized academics and practitioners in educational research and among the top recipients of U. S. Department of Education grants for programs aimed at improving educational outcomes for students. The Johns Hopkins School of Education is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), formerly the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). All programs leading to certification are approved by the Maryland State Department of Education. The Johns Hopkins University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE).
