Earn a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in Transformative Teaching. This degree is for working educators who want to develop their anti-racist, social justice-oriented teaching and leadership skills.
Transformative Teaching has a somewhat unique structure: as a cohort program, you and your peers progress through the degree as a group, in a faculty-designed curriculum that is administered in sequence. This creates a more seamless experience between your work as an educator and your engagement with the course material, and provides you with a supportive learning community throughout your two years with us and beyond.
This degree will enable you to:
(1) continually identify and rethink the routines and assumptions that shape your work.
(2) critically reflect upon and improve your practice with the support of a learning community of peers and faculty.
(3) design thoughtful and constructive responses to the obstacles that inhibit teaching and student learning.
(4) develop the skills and dispositions to commit to a career as an educator.
(5) be a leader in your school, your professional associations, and your community as an anti-racist, civically-engaged advocate for educators and students.
