UCLA began as a Teacher’s College in 1882, and we have been shaping and molding the knowledge sector in this country ever since. We develop future generations of scholars, teachers, information professionals, and institutional leaders.

Prepares students to be leaders in education research, policy and practice.


Seeks to define, study and evaluate interactions among people, information and information technology in a way that promotes equity, diversity, accountability and intellectual openness.


Groundbreaking research is more than a concept at Ed & IS — it’s a plan of action. Our nationally renowned research centers and institutes are doing fundamental work on what matters most in education and information studies in the 21st century: the discovery and application of usable knowledge at the crossroads of policy and practice.
