About the School of Education

Additional Navigation

The School of Education at SUNY Oswego was established in 1861 by Edward Austin Sheldon. He promoted a method of hands-on learning that became the pedagogical foundation for what is now technology education and other programs at SUNY Oswego that emphasize authentic learning and field experiences, including childhood, adolescence and vocational teacher preparation.

Today, the School of Education consists of about 70 full-time faculty in six departments offering these and other programs, including educational administration, literacy, childhood special education, art education, teaching English to speakers of Other languages (TESOL), school counseling, school psychology, mental health counseling, gerontology, wellness management, technology management, agricultural education, and business and marketing education.

Exploring the School of Education website provides ample information about current programs, faculty, students, initiatives, and the history & organization of the School of Education. For more information, email educate@oswego.edu or call 315.312.2102.
