The UCLA School of Education & Information Studies is committed to continuing research in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). The School consists of two academic departments: the Department of Education and the Department of Information Studies. The Department of Education's research is geared toward improving learning and teaching in the classroom, the workplace, and the home. The department is known as a leader in the study and practice of student testing and assessment, teacher and continuing education and development - particularly in urban, multi-ethnic environments, early childhood development, and issues of access, equity and quality facing K-12 higher education. Faculty and students work together to solve the most pressing issues facing education today. This collaborative, dynamic environment helps students develop the skills they need to become leading education professionals in the 21st century.

The Department of Information Studies is internationally recognized for research in areas such as digital archives and libraries, multimedia databases, social implications of the Internet, organization of knowledge and information policy. Researchers focus on all kinds of environments where information is stored and retrieved, including the World Wide Web, museums, corporations, schools, universities, and public libraries. The Department of Information Studies was ranked 14th in U.S. News & World Report's last survey of Library and Information Studies graduate schools.
