Welcome to the SF State Graduate College of Education

Our college has a proud tradition of building on the legacy of San Francisco State University, started as a Normal School for Teachers in 1899. From those beginnings, we have developed programs that provide multiple pathways for future educators to serve people across the life-span for life-long learning.

We offer a full spectrum of career paths that include programs for undergraduate students to prepare for becoming a teacher, speech-language pathologist, audiologists and more. At the post-baccalaureate and graduate level, we offer credential programs for future teachers in special education, elementary and high-school; and school administration settings. Our master’s programs include the Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology, Master of Arts in Special Education, and Master of Arts in Education with many specialized areas. We also offer two doctoral programs, the Educational Doctorate and Joint Ph.D. with UC Berkeley in Special Education.
