The first courses in education were taught in the Department of Philosophy. Education became a department in its own right in 1924. Even before that year, Tufts students were practice-teaching in local schools; this would become a fundamental component of teacher-training. The department has served many populations: undergraduates, Master's and doctoral candidates seeking to teach or to study the fields of education and curriculum-development, and working teachers who want to further their education. It has forged bonds with other departments and institutions, the better to prepare students for specialized fields such as science education and art education.
