The Stanford Graduate School of Education (also known as Stanford GSE, or GSE) is one of the seven schools of Stanford University and is one of the top education schools in the United States. It was founded in 1891 and offers master's and doctoral programs in more than 25 areas of specialization, along with joint degrees with other programs at Stanford University including business, law, and public policy.
Stanford GSE offers ten M.A. programs and four Ph.D. programs. The school's degree programs are academic rather than professional and grant M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. It also has undergraduate honors and minors programs. As a graduate school of education, the undergraduate programs are not degree programs but instead offer education-related training for students majoring in other areas as well as co-terminal master's degrees. The largest program is the Stanford Teacher Education Program (STEP), which is the only program at the university which offers a teaching credential for K-12 teachers.
