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.
