Jeffery Strand, Master of Education student

The Master of Arts Education (MAE) program is premised on the central idea of providing both educators and community workers with a program to explore civic agency and democratic education work. This program is ideal for students wishing to develop greater expertise and academic preparation in pedagogical practice, content areas, and socio-political context. Diverse faculty contribute meaningfully to a program that places the degree candidate in the position to integrate knowledge and to acknowledge and honor various traditions that inform their work and teaching.

Graduates of this program will be prepared toward the political and social dimensions of organizing, will have developed a skill set in naming and growing civic agency, will possess cultural and social awareness that enables meaningful public work projects across disciplinary confines.
