The New York University Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development (commonly referred to as Steinhardt) is the secondary liberal arts and education school of New York University. It is one of the only schools in the world of its type.
Founded in 1890, it is the first school of pedagogy to be established at an American university. Prior to 2001, it was known as the NYU School of Education.
Located on NYU's founding campus in Greenwich Village, the Steinhardt School offers bachelor's, master's, advanced certificate, and doctoral programs in the fields of applied psychology, art, education, health, media, and music. NYU Steinhardt also offers several degree programs at NYU's Brooklyn campus.
Founded in 1890 as the School of Pedagogy, the School soon added courses in psychology, counseling, art, and music. In 1910, it established the first US university chair in experimental education. During the 1920s, enrollment increased from 990 to more than 9,500 students. The Education Building on Washington Square opened in 1930 and still serves as the School's home today.
The School was named the Steinhardt School of Education in 2001, in recognition of a $10 million donation, the largest it has ever received, from Michael and Judy Steinhardt. In 2007, the school was renamed the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development to reflect the diversity of its academic programs.
