College of Education

Join Alabama State University’s oldest and largest college, the College of Education, and get your undergraduate, graduate or doctoral degree in teaching, administration, educational leadership or school counseling.

At Alabama State University, our motto is, “When we teach class, the world takes note.” We know there’s nothing more valuable than an education, and since 1867, we’ve understood the power a teacher has to touch people and change the world. Come to ASU, and let us help you to become the best teacher or administrator you can be---a person dedicated to life-long learning and committed to improving the lives of others through education.

The College of Education at Alabama State University is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation on Teacher Education (NCATE). This accreditation covers initial teacher preparation programs and advanced educator preparation programs at Alabama State University. However, the accreditation does not include individual education courses that the institution offers to P-12 educators for professional development, relicensure, or other purposes.
