Meeting the Needs of Students and Educators

The M.Ed. Program, with ten areas of concentration, meets the need of today’s teachers and their students by offering a 21st-century curriculum responsive to the challenges that educators and school administrators face every day. To understand the needs and motivations of students and help them overcome obstacles to learning within their environments, educators and other concerned adults need specialized training that is unavailable in most master of education programs.

Goucher’s M.Ed. Program provides specialized training for teachers who work in and outside the classroom, including special educators and athletic leaders. The program is designed to equip school professionals with the tools, skills, and knowledge they need to facilitate and support student success.

Ten Areas of Specialization

Goucher College’s master of education degree and professional development certificates, developed in collaboration with Sheppard Pratt Health System, aim to fill this void. With a curriculum specially designed to integrate theoretical and practical coursework, the graduate program is divided into ten areas of specialization:

  • Athletic Program Leadership and Administration
  • At-Risk & Diverse Learners
  • Literacy Strategies for Content Learning
  • Teaching English for Speakers of Other Language (ESOL)
