Our 13-month, full-time education graduate programs are designed for motivated people with a marked passion for learning and a strong commitment to making a difference in students’ lives. Our degree programs are a good fit for those who learn best with a combination of coursework and real-world experiences, where you have the chance to practice what you are learning in the classroom under the guidance of expert faculty.
We emphasize transformative, culturally competent teaching that supports personal and academic achievement in all learners. Discover for yourself how equity and excellence in education are profoundly interconnected. Through specialized study, you will acquire the knowledge, competence, and the commitment you will need to serve an increasingly diverse student population in our nation’s schools. A culminating educational experience will be when you plan and conduct your own teacher inquiry research project to present at our annual conference.
A hallmark of your experience will be the interactions with actual elementary, middle, or high school students in classrooms. Using the best pedagogical practices, you will collaborate with faculty and future colleagues to hone your craft and connect theory with practice in public school classrooms. This will include opportunities to observe, tutor, team-teach, and teach in multiple and diverse settings.
You will graduate a reflective practitioner and action researcher in your own classrooms. We are immensely proud that our education graduates go on to contribute actively to school and community improvement efforts and take leadership roles in our nation’s schools.
