Substantial Mod: Educational Studies Program Description
The Master of Science in Education with a concentration in Educational Studies is designed to support the development of novice teachers as they work to increase student learning in their classrooms through strategic and comprehensive professional development, coursework and reflection.  All courses are intended to involve formats that will draw on the very best practices in teacher in student learning.  The modified M.S. Ed Studies program proposed will be administered with a partnership with Urban Teachers (UT), a non-profit organization whose mission is to prepare highly effective teachers who significantly accelerate students achievement in the nation’s highest-need schools, in delivering a teaching training program that begins with a one-year intensive residency followed by a three-year teaching fellowship that combines coursework with intensive coaching/mentoring and clinical experiences.
