Department: Curriculum and Teaching
Welcome to the Department of Curriculum and Teaching at Hunter College, the home of a wide variety of graduate and undergraduate programs in education.
As part of the largest department in the Hunter College School of Education, Curriculum & Teaching programs prepare teachers and other school personnel in the areas of Childhood Education (elementary), Adolescent Education (secondary), Early Childhood Education, Literacy, Bilingual Education, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL–K-12 and Adult), Creative Arts Education, Computer Science Education and Administration & Supervision. Our primary mission is to prepare teachers and school leaders for any education environment, although we are particularly committed to preparing teachers for the challenges of public education in an urban setting.
The Department of Curriculum and Teaching houses the majority of programs and courses in the Hunter College School of Education, working closely with departments in the School of Arts & Sciences to train teachers in content area knowledge, and in the methods of teaching such subject areas as English/Language Arts, Social Studies, World Languages, Music, ESL, Bilingual Education, Math, and Science. Our programs assist future teachers and administrators to be thoughtful and knowledgeable educators by advocating for their students' academic and social well being. We also advocate approaches to education that promote social justice in schools, local communities and the broader society.
