Educating Teachers since 1861

SUNY Oswego’s Curriculum and Instruction Department has a long standing history of providing innovative and beneficial teaching methods for the students. Since its establishment by Edward Austin Sheldon in 1861 as the Oswego Primary Teachers' Training School, SUNY Oswego has crafted the instruction of teachers into a high quality educational program. The primary mission of the Curriculum and Instruction Department is the preparation of socially conscious teachers, in the areas of Childhood, Adolescence and TESOL Education, who promote the authentic learning of all students. As the largest department in the State University of New York at Oswego’s School of Education, the goal is to prepare teachers with the knowledge to work in the public and private schools in New York, the northeast region and the nation.
