Belmont’s College of Education prepares and equips teacher candidates and leaders in the field of Education from diverse backgrounds to become effective, culturally responsive educators and leaders, and committed advocates for children, families, and communities. 

Master of Arts in Teaching offers multiple pathways toward initial teacher licensure through our Master of Arts in Teaching degree. Belmont’s teacher education programs are approved by the Tennessee Department of Education, and accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation through the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). 

Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Teacher Leadership degree is a non-licensing track, for current teachers looking to enhance their career opportunities, or individuals interested in pursing a career in advocacy or policy. Courses are designed with working professionals in mind, with courses offered on weekends and evenings. 

Doctor of Philosophy in Strategic Leadership in Education (Ph.D.) prepares and equips graduates for success as both senior leaders in education-oriented organizations and as scholars in the field of Educational Leadership. Belmont’s predominantly on-line program uniquely offers three industry-relevant interdisciplinary concentrations: Educational Leadership, Management and Entrepreneurship, and Faith and Justice Leadership.
