Teaching, Learning, and Leadership, MSEd
Focused primarily on K-12 populations, the M.S.Ed. in Teaching, Learning, and Leadership is designed for individuals who wish to work in educational and leadership capacities both in and outside of formal classroom settings. Students choose one of two areas of informal specialization: Teaching and Learning, or Educational Leadership. Students enjoy individualized courses of study in a small, community-oriented cohort. Our two-semester internship program, paired with our Internship Seminar, gives students an in-depth understanding of how learning occurs in out-of-school environments. Graduates work in schools, school administrations, after-school programs, museum settings, and educational non-profits.

Candidates for the M.S.Ed. degree must demonstrate knowledge of the field of education beyond the area of specialization. This requirement is met by satisfying the distribution requirement. To meet the distribution requirement, students must complete one approved graduate level (500 and above) GSE course outside the student’s area of specialization, earning a grade of "B" or better. Students should check with their program manager for a list of courses approved to fulfill the distribution requirement. Further requirements regarding these courses may be specified by each division.
The degree and major requirements displayed are intended as a guide for students entering in the Fall of 2020 and later. Students should consult with their academic program regarding final certifications and requirements for graduation.
