The Patton College of Education has been a proud pillar of Ohio University since 1886, when it became the first state-supported teacher preparation program in Ohio. Today, the college has grown to include undergraduate and graduate programs that lead to careers in teaching, counseling, and public school and higher education administration.
Learning is at the heart of all we do in the Patton College of Education, but our mission is about more than just providing an education. The College of Education strives to be an equitable, effective, and interactive learning community that makes a difference to education and human development through excellent teaching, scholarship, and service. We seek answers to questions about how people learn and what they should know and be able to do as students, teachers, counselors, and administrators.
The Patton College of Education's teacher and administrator preparation programs are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. Counselor education programs in the college are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs and the Council on Rehabilitation Education.
Established in 1804, Ohio University is the oldest public institution of higher learning in the state of Ohio and the first in the Northwest Territory. Admission to Ohio University is granted to the best-qualified applicants as determined by a selective admission policy.
