Whether you dream of teaching a classroom full of young, impressionable minds, helping the speech impaired find their voice, or guiding clients through life’s challenges and opportunities, you’ll find success at Saint Rose.
We’re nationally known for our work in the field of education, school psychology, and speech therapy, and we’re proud to say we grant more degrees and certificates in the field of education than any other college or university in New York State.
Our programs prepare students for the rigors of grad school and coveted career opportunities. The Thelma P. Lally School of Education has cultivated strong relationships with many employers across New York, and since we’re located in the heart of Albany, we’re within walking distance of many student teaching and fieldwork opportunities (and our on-campus speech clinic).
Grad students learn how to enhance their practice, and career changers gain confidence in transitioning to a new field. We understand that for grad students especially, life gets in the way. Our expert faculty work one-on-one with each student to make sure they’re successful — failure is not an option.
But, there’s more to our school than preparing students to work. We place an emphasis on inclusivity and diversity, educating our students how to be advocates for all.
The education landscape is changing, and we’re up to the challenge of meeting the needs of the times (one of Saint Rose’s founding values), aiding our students with the knowledge and tools they need to face the future of education, psychology, or speech pathology. That’s our promise to you.
