Master of Arts in Education: New Program Launch

In response to the changing needs of learners and their communities in the 21st century, GSEP has launched the new Master of Arts in Education (MAE) program for educators who want to strengthen their leadership, cultural proficiency, and impact as practitioners.

Under the leadership of Martine Jago, interim associate dean of education, the Education faculty spent nearly two years collaborating to develop and introduce the new program. The program prepares educators for K-12 environments with sound learning technologies, and supports scholar-practitioners in their pursuit of professional development within the field of education.

The new program features five learning pathways: Teacher Preparation; Educational Psychology; Literacy; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM); and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). The MAE for Teacher Preparation is a 34-unit program with a multiple-subject or single-subject teaching credential. The other pathways are 30-unit programs.

This exciting degree program is designed to be completed in as little as one year, and features technology-blended classes, a focus on clinical practice, and an Action Research Project—all of which offer candidates the tools and techniques to effect positive change and productivity in diverse classrooms or other educational settings.
