Although the College has a long history of providing teacher education, even effectively hosting the first student teacher in America when a Maryland teacher in 1690 received mentoring from a College instructor in improving his own teaching, The College of William & Mary School of Education did not become a distinct entity until 1961. 11 years after its separation, the SOE awarded its first doctoral degree.
