The Department of Education prepares professionals of diverse backgrounds to develop and gain the knowledge, skills, and character necessary to become exemplary educators and leaders who advocate for children, families, and communities.

We embrace Belmont University’s mission to “empower men and women to transform the world” as educators and leaders of organizations who champion equity, opportunity and dignity for all.

Our graduate programs cultivate these values. We believe the most successful programs combine academics with hands-on experience and are tailored to the individual. Our programs are customized to meet students' academic objectives within the realistic confines of their busy lives. Therefore, our courses combine small class sizes and flexible schedules to meet the needs of busy working professionals.

We develop skills of leadership, innovation, and advocacy within our students as we equip them to learn and lead in schools, non-profits, and other complex organizations that serve our communities.
