The University of Texas at Arlington’s College of Education strives to promote a collaborative culture of excellence in research, teaching, and service. Our goal is to enliven students' lives, to provide them with unique experiences built on high standards, to encourage them to think critically and creatively, and to instill in them a lifetime commitment to learning and service to their communities.

The College of Education is fully accredited through the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and in 2006 became the first College of Education within the UT System to receive accreditation through the prestigious National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.

The college currently offers bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees through its academic units: the Departments of Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Leadership and Policy Studies. Students may also pursue professional teacher, administrator, and other certifications.
