The Department of Education had its origin as the college of Education within the Vidyapith in 1962 and was affiliated to the University of Rajasthan. It was the first wholly residential teacher education institute for women, in the whole region. Later on, when the Vidyapith gained the status of a Deemed University in 1983, the college of education got elevated as the Department of Education. The Department of Education and Physical Education were brought together as the Faculty of Education.
The department offers 4-Year Integrated Bachelor of Arts Bachelor of Education (B.A. B.Ed.), 4-Year Integrated Bachelor of Science Bachelor of Education (B.Sc. B.Ed.), 2-year Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.), Master of Education (M.Ed.) and Doctor of Philosophy in Education (Ph.D.).
At present, the department is recognized as one of the progressive teacher education institute in the country known for its quality and innovativeness. The teaching programs involve not only practicing new ideas and concepts but also acquiring skills to act on those concepts to generate personal understanding and articulate the same.
The Department of Education upgraded as ‘School of Education' by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India under its Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya National Mission on Teachers and Teaching scheme in October 2018.
