The University of California, Berkeley Graduate School of Education is one of 14 schools and colleges at the University of California, Berkeley, and has historically been one of the top schools of education in the United States. The Graduate School of Education specializes in teacher training and education research.

Location[edit]

The Graduate School of Education is located in Berkeley Way West in Downtown Berkeley,[4] after previously occupying the east wing of Tolman Hall, located in the northwest area of the UC Berkeley campus.[5] Tolman Hall was deemed seismically unfit and is slated for demolition;[6] the Graduate School of Education shares the Berkeley Way West building with the UC Berkeley School of Public Health and the Department of Psychology.[7]

History[edit]

The Graduate School of Education traces its roots back to 1889, when the Regents of the University of California announced “the intention…to establish a course of instruction in the science and art of teaching.”[8] In subsequent years, the B.A. in Education would be offered by the University of California, Berkeley College of Letters and Science in 1892, followed by the establishment of the Department of Education (which would be included as a unit of the Graduate Division) in 1900. In 1913, UC Regents would establish the School of Education, with educator Alexis F. Lange presiding as the school's first dean.[9]

Over the next few decades, Doctoral, Master's, and Credential programs would develop, along with an outgrowth of other notable research initiatives, programs, fellowships, and institutes. Among these programs and institutes, came the establishment of the National Writing Project (NWP), which was founded in 1974 as the Bay Area Writing Project (BAWP).[10]

Programs[edit]

The school has Master's Degree and Ph.D. programs which are contained within three Areas of Study (with the exception of LEEP, which is a schoolwide program) and grouped by Degree and Credential objectives. All four Credential programs include an M.A. degree.[11] All graduate programs stress the integration of theory with practical application. Researchers and classroom professionals work together to develop solutions to the grand challenges in education that require collaborative efforts across disciplines.[12]

Other programs and academic units[edit]

  • Leadership for Educational Equity (LEEP)
  • The Graduate Group in Science and Mathematics Education (SESAME)
  • Undergraduate Minor in Education
