Childhood Education

We are guided by what it means to be an education professional.

The Childhood Education Program is dedicated to the professional education and personal development of elementary teachers as advocates for children. Teachers are:

  • Scholars committed to a life of study and inquiry
  • Agents for democratic social change, dedicated to the practice of freedom and work of justice
  • Open to possibilities, people of aesthetic sensibility, passion, and personal vision, embracing beauty and imaginative possibility in their work
  • Self-aware people who know themselves and attend to their own growth through the practice of mindful and reflective self-examination

Please Note: The M.A. in childhood education is an initial program for students who do not currently hold certification in elementary (childhood) education. Qualified candidates certified in areas other than elementary education may enroll in this program to earn a second teaching certificate and fulfill the graduate degree requirement for professional (permanent) certification in both areas.
