Offering programs in teacher education, applied psychology, educational leadership, and educational research, measurement, and evaluation, the Lynch School of Education is the 18th ranked school of education by U.S. News and World Report.
Every day, members of the Lynch School community strive to address today’s great challenges in psychology and education and to create groundbreaking solutions that inform state and national policy while bettering the lives of students, parents, and families throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.
Students of education at the Lynch School benefit from Boston College’s proximity to the city of Boston, a hub of education that offers schools ranging from institutions of higher education to suburban, urban, district, charter, Catholic, and private K-12 schools. Lynch School students are exposed to a wide range of educational opportunities and immerse themselves in a variety of academic experiences without traveling far from the Boston College campus. Lynch School students are trained to keep social justice at the heart of their practice and learn to follow their natural inclination to answer curiosity.
Lynch School research and community outreach affects families throughout the nation. Programs such as Low Income Family Training (LIFT), College Bound, and the Urban Catholic Teachers Corps, to name a few, are connecting people with the resources they need to live healthy and satisfying lives.
Through rigorous courses, discussion in and out of the classroom, and participation in community outreach activities, Lynch School students seek to understand social problems such as poverty, violence, and social inequity and the role that cultural and social change plays in transforming social structures.
The Lynch School’s mission permeates all of its classroom, service, and research initiatives: to enhance the human condition, to expand the human imagination, and to make the world more just.
