About the School of Education
Message from the Director
Welcome to the School of Education at Cal State San Marcos. I invite you to explore the various programs we offer, including a wide range of credentials, several Masters degree options, and our Ed.D. in Educational Leadership in partnership with UC San Diego. All of our programs are guided by our mission and core values that focus on efforts to transform public education by preparing thoughtful educators and advancing professional practices through student centered education targeting success for all students.
We have outstanding faculty and staff as well as robust partnerships with schools and community agencies. Faculty members actively engage in research that keeps them connected to public schools and professional organizations. Feedback from our graduates indicate our faculty members use their applied research to inform their teaching practice. Our local school partnerships afford us unique opportunities to enhance teacher and educational leadership preparation in ways that directly impact student learning. The Communicative Sciences Disorders program has a focus on practice in the public schools, but also prepares individuals to practice across the entire scope of the field
Our graduates are highly sought after by regional districts and related fields. We have an outstanding reputation for preparing highly qualified, dynamic and dedicated professionals, educators and leaders. Our alumni are employed in successful careers throughout the region and beyond.
I appreciate your interest in the education profession and in the School of Education. Please explore our site to learn more about the range of programs offered. Please stop in and visit our Education Offices and Education Services Center (University Hall, 2nd floor) and learn more about how we can serve your needs.
