Our program in adolescence education offers a master’s degree that can facilitate your teaching in the subject of your choice. Nose always in a novel? Help give 11th graders the tools to interpret great works as an English teacher. Love watching an ant colony at work or the movement of the stars?

Our program is headed by faculty with an impressive breadth of practical experience in the classroom and a thorough understanding of pedagogy.
