Master of Arts in Education on campus
Demographics across the country are changing, and classrooms are becoming more diverse.* In light of these trends, classrooms are becoming increasingly multicultural, with students and educators from varied and rich cultural backgrounds.
The Master of Arts in Education program with a specialization in Teaching and Learning is designed to help you develop culturally responsive learning environments that foster student success in today’s global society.
In this program, you will explore ways to work more effectively with students from a range of socioeconomic, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds.
You will also learn how to best support the learning of English-language learners (ELLs) through research-based strategies that build upon student strengths and promote communication among teachers, students, and families. Explore common obstacles that impede the learning of ELLs and master techniques to avoid and overcome those challenges.
As a student in this program, you will:
- Build learning environments that foster success for culturally and linguistically diverse students.
- Examine the cognitive, sociocultural, political, and pedagogical factors that affect first and second language development in a multicultural setting.
- Develop a range of practical strategies that address comprehensive, specialized instruction for ELL students.
- Design relevant curriculum, instruction, and assessment that improve student learning and achievement.
This program is offered both on campus and completely online.
