Make a lasting impact
At Belmont University’s College of Education, we strive to grow, develop, and support educators and leaders who teach brilliantly, innovate boldly, advocate passionately, and serve faithfully.
The College of Education is truly a community. A community of learners, a community of faith, a community that assists, supports, and encourages one another. Belmont Teachers value the complex work of education as a chance to enhance the lives and future opportunities of young people, and to literally transform the world. We know that effectively educating children will have a lasting impact beyond even our lifetime. And for our graduates, that is an extraordinary expression of faithful service and living our purpose.
To teach brilliantly means to teach intelligently and thoughtfully, and to have the knowledge, skills, and capabilities to truly shine in the classroom. To both illuminate and to enlighten. Belmont Teachers are exceptionally well-prepared to excel as educators, and remarkably well-positioned to serve as beacons of light and hope for the young people they teach.
Education is the wellspring of innovation, and innovation, in turn, elevates educational excellence. At Belmont University we believe that a relentless focus on the needs of the learner inspires innovative practices and bold new ways of thinking and teaching that can substantially enhance the educational experience of our students, and those they serve.
In the College of Education, we advocate passionately with and for our students, families, and communities. We believe that advocacy means working to identify and change unjust structures in education and in our society, so that all students have the opportunity and access to succeed and flourish. Notably, our students and graduates also advocate for excellence in the teaching profession, because nothing can have a more positive impact on the future vitality of our communities than an exemplary education for all children.

Be Exceptionally Well Prepared!
Belmont University’s College of Education offers students valuable opportunities to be in PreK-12 classrooms from their very first semester on campus. This early and frequent field experience enables our students to understand and embrace the demands of teaching and the rhythms of a thriving classroom. Our rigorous and comprehensive programs combine deep content knowledge with excellent pedagogy, proven student support strategies, and research-based practice to enable our graduates to be effective, successful, and truly transformational teachers and leaders.
