For more than 20 years the Education Department at Columbia College Chicago has led the state of Illinois in providing BA- and MAT-seeking students of all ages with the necessary skills to become effective and successful teachers. We view the arts as essential components of child development, and as expansive tools to assess child learning.

Our department is home to a host of undergraduate and graduate programs, all of which connect one’s passion for the arts with one’s commitment to the education and well being of children and youth. Our programs are shaped to instill in future teachers the ability to learn how the arts are tools for learning, and how the arts are disciplines that should be studied and explored.

The Education Department at Columbia is committed to the equitable education of all young people, especially those in challenging circumstances. We are located in the heart of Chicago’s South Loop and share a strong connection to the city and its school system.

Upon graduating, students in our programs apply their theory and research-based pedagogical craft in schools, social services agencies, community organizations, and other venues designed for the education of infants and youth through grade twelve. After leaving Columbia, our students become effective agents for change, teaching, and social justice. Our students change the world.
