A personal, individualized approach
Goucher's Graduate Programs in Education combine top-quality instruction and a rigorous course of study with the support students need to meet the demands of a challenging program. Students have easy access to faculty, receive help from technical writers, and have the opportunity to form study groups with their peers.
An array of specializations
The Master of Education program
The M.Ed. is designed for those that have a passion and talent for working with youth. While teaching experience is an advantage, it is not required for these programs. There are several specializations including:
The Master of Arts in Teaching program
The M.A.T. prepares those outside of the education field who wish to become teachers, in addition to preparing conditional teachers to meet the diverse needs of students.
