Why Choose UC Davis?

School of Education

The School of Education at UC Davis trains teachers and education leaders using the latest and most innovative teaching practices, and by conducting and disseminating cutting-edge research to improve instruction.

At the heart of the School of Education’s vision is a fundamental concern with influencing the practice of education through research and training. Our faculty and graduate students are engaged on local and regional levels and with national and international educational reform and policy. We especially seek to confront and eliminate inequities in the schooling opportunities for diverse learners.

At the School, you will work with a distinguished community of scholars and be mentored by eminent faculty.

The School of Education was founded in 2002, although teacher training at UC Davis dates back to 1918. Since its founding, the School has doubled the number of faculty. The teaching credential program, continues to grow, as do faculty grants and financial support from alumni and friends.
