The Master of Arts Education is designed to provide both educators and community workers with a program to explore civic agency and democratic education work. This program is ideal for students who want to develop expertise and academic preparation in pedagogical practice, content areas, and socio-political context. Diverse faculty guide degree candidates in the integration of broad knowledge and honoring various traditions that inform their work and teaching.
