The Promise of Enlightenment: Working Together for a Common Good

The Lasallian tradition is ultimately about service to others. By focusing on improving the lives of others, we are able to expand our minds as well as our hearts. The School of Education and Health prepares students to be excellent teachers in a range of environments. We also offer undergraduate programs in health professions, and graduate programs in special education, counseling and school leadership.

Rich, varied and extensive field experience is the hallmark of our school. New York has numerous opportunities for internships, student teaching and fieldwork to help you put theory into practice. ImageWhether you are working with students on reading skills or learning the ropes in a clinical setting, your experience at Manhattan College ensures you are well-prepared for your career after graduation. Additionally, our teacher preparation programs are accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) and approved by the New York State Education Department.
