Education with an Area of Concentration in Educational Studies at Federal Hill Prepratory School Program Description
The Master of Science (M.S.) in Education with an Area of Concentration in Educational Studies is designed to prepare highly qualified educators to teach in urban school districts. The specific program option that will be offered at the off-campus site is the Johns Hopkins University School of Education partnership program with Urban Teachers. <br> <br>Due to the need for a dedicated space in an authentic school setting and the dispersed nature of the student body in the MS Ed Studies/Urban Teachers partnership program, it is most practical to bring students together at one off-campus site, rather than multiple sites, to help deliver the program coursework. Urban Teachers has built a strong relationship with Baltimore City Public Schools; the Johns Hopkins University School of Education and Urban Teachers have identified Federal Hill Preparatory School as suitable to meet all the instructional needs for the program. <br> <br>In addition to addressing the specific societal need of expanding educational opportunities for minority and educationally disadvantaged students, the MS Ed Studies/Urban Teachers partnership program also supports the more general goal of advancing knowledge by preparing highly trained educators, who, in turn, seek to pass on knowledge to the students they are teaching. <br>
