Welcome to Our Experienced Educators Programs
Concentration and Certificate Areas
Nature-based Early Childhood Education
Across North America, there is a growing movement to bring children outdoors for early childhood education to improve and support literacy, reading, and math development—also leadership and resilience. Our program—the first in the nation—gives you all the skills you need to become a successful outdoor educator.
Integrated STEAM Education
Through the exploration and implementation of innovative pedagogical practices, the Integrated STEAM Education Concentration will help you create classrooms in which science, technology, engineering, arts, and math are integrated into an engaging, coherent whole.
Trauma-Informed Education Certificate
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.
Transform schools into centers of learning and action that utilize the local community as a context for developing essential skills and understandings. Our program gives educators the tools to guide students to better understand and positively influence their world.
Educating For Sustainability
Using technology in the classroom isn’t just about mastering the most recent technological gadget. It’s about leveraging these advancements to build communities, increase project opportunities, and empower learners to bring their visions to life in the 21st century.
Dyslexia Studies Certificate
Our students utilize cutting edge research in the field of dyslexia education to empower all students—including the one in five students who have dyslexia. Learn the structure of language and foundational concepts of oral and written learning to help children with dyslexia grasp a better understanding of information across a multitude of disciplines. Stand out and make a strong academic impact on the lives of those with dyslexia.
In this concentration, you can learn to enhance your classroom with complex, interesting, real-world learning opportunities that authentically boost student motivation and achievement.
Mindfulness for Educators
The Mindfulness for Educators program strengthens an educator’s innate wisdom through the study and daily application of ancient and current applied philosophical perspectives, and universal and human development models.
Reggio Emilia Certificate
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.
Become a “solutionary.” The MA in Humane Education teaches students to raise awareness and educate effectively about the interconnected issues that affect people, animals, and the environment, with a focus on bringing about long-term, systemic change.
