Message From The Chair
At Antioch University New England, we believe in educating the whole child. We believe that everybody matters: the child and the teachers. Equity means creating systems that allow every child to matter. Schools need to address that.
Reflective teaching practice: it’s really important that teachers have the chance to think about what they’re doing. That includes being able to reflect on our own assumptions around race and class.
Classes Cultivate Community
Like-minded community. We’ve got a vibrant and engaged community. No matter the program, our courses cultivate community. We create safe and dynamic spaces where students find camaraderie, nourishment, challenge, and inspiration. Our students often say, “I feel like I’ve found my people. This is my niche. This is my place.”
The World Needs You
We are facing nationwide teacher shortages, but especially in high need areas like special education. If you can see yourself in this calling, there couldn’t be a better time to get your degree and become a teacher.
At Antioch, we use in-depth thematic studies to make the learning experience more cohesive, effective, and engaging. Our; meaningful learning cuts across subject areas. We teach to the whole child, while simultaneously addressing standards.

Experiential Learning: Making the World a More Wondrous Place for Children
As teachers, we want to help kids with their skills—but we also want to help them build a love of learning and a hunger to explore the world. Our programs are all designed to nurture the feelings of wonder and engagement that all children innately possess.
Many Opportunities to Specialize
The Reggio Emilia approach to working with young children views the child as competent, creative, curious, and full of wonderings. In our program—the first and only Graduate Certificate in the Reggio Emilia Approach—you learn to structure the classroom, inside and outside, to support your students’ innate curiosity and capability.
Join the growing movement of educators improving interaction and student success by recognizing signs of developmental trauma and responding thoughtfully, informed by the latest in science and pedagogy.
On the Cutting Edge of Special Education
We take a holistic approach to special education. There are so many ways of taking in information and interacting with the world, from reading and studying to making art and dancing. Each approach has great value, so we fill our Antioch classrooms with paints and puppets, to give you experiences that you can share with all of your students.
