The Department of Urban Education prepares teacher candidates to teach in racially, ethnically, economically, and linguistically diverse K-12 schools, and our programs are rooted in justice, community, transformation, and equity. The Department of Urban Education is a national leader in certifying and mentoring educators of color. We are the only department in the state of New Jersey with an undergraduate major in ESL and Bilingual Education, among many other notable offerings. Our students learn from dynamic field experiences in the Newark community and conduct coursework and inquiry with publicly engaged faculty who are leaders in their fields. The campus of Rutgers University-Newark is annually recognized by U.S. News and World Report for being one of the most diverse university in the country. Urban Education plays a critical role in sustaining the institution's legacy of inclusiveness.
