Graduate Studies in Education

Master of Arts

 Rank I

We also have an Alternative Certification program for students who have a bachelor's degree and wish to earn an initial teaching certificate to begin a career in education.

The organizing program theme of our master's programs in education, "Teacher Leader," embodies Union College's vision and that of the Educational Studies Unit. The department consists of a community of learners committed to promoting life-long learning in their own lives, as well as fostering a spirit of inquiry in the lives of others. We believe that students who complete graduate degrees in education should be well grounded in the liberal arts, with a sure pedagogical talent, a passion for working with students, and a commitment to ongoing study.
