The Johns Hopkins School of Education


For over a century, the Johns Hopkins University School of Education (SOE) has been preparing educators to make a difference in the lives of children, youth, and adults. Founded in 1909 as the College Courses for Teachers, the school addresses some of the most challenging problems facing education today through graduate and doctorate programs; research and development activities; external partnerships with school systems, educational entrepreneurs, and health care-related organizations; and collaborative connections to the broader Johns Hopkins research community. Ranked among the top 10 graduate schools of education by US News & World Report, the school houses three research centers: the Center for Research and Reform in Education; the Center for Social Organization of Schools; and the Center for Technology in Education. The school's nationally renowned Division of Public Safety Leadership provides degree programs that foster current and future public safety leaders.
