Welcome to the Department of Education and Academic Literacy
We are committed to supporting students in every way possible. Our students require support and exposure to the most up-to-date tools and pedagogy. Our goal is to ensure that our graduates meet all the standards necessary to reach their goals in the workforce or when transferring to four-year institutions.
We offer certificate programs in Assistant of Children with Special Needs and Bilingual Early Childhood Assistant. We offer Associate of Applied Science in Education, Associate of Art in Liberal Arts and Sciences: Early Childhood and Childhood Education option and Associate of Art in Liberal Arts and Sciences: Secondary Education option.
Meet the Staff
We have established a state-of-the-art learning environment to help education majors become competent in implementing tools of technology for study, research and best pedagogical practices.
Future Teachers’ Club
The Future Teachers’ Club, formerly the Family Literacy and Education Society, has played an active role on campus for the past 26 years. The student club is composed of approximately 60 students per academic year. Students network with one other, their classmates, and from time to time with other campus clubs.
The club disseminates pertinent information about the department’s student support services, educational programs, and career opportunities. Members of the club participated in a CUNY-wide conference hosted by pre-service education trainees from the various colleges within the university that have education programs. Each year the Future Teachers’ Club sponsors Education Day on our campus.
