Dean's Message

The College of Education offers professional programs that prepare teachers, curriculum specialists, counselors, school psychologists, technology specialists and school administrators to work in urban multicultural communities. Our programs are designed to meet the needs of undergraduate and graduate students, with many courses offered during the day and evening to accommodate working professionals. 

We value our close association with the school districts in the Los Angeles basin and the established professional development schools in our local districts. The College of Education works in conjunction with partnership school districts to support the education mission and goals of the university.

As you view the pages on our website you find specific information about our divisions, degree and credential programs, student services and key faculty information. 

Thank you for your interest in the College of Education. 

John Davis, Ph.D. - Dean
