Bring the creative arts with you to your PreK-2 classroom through this Initial Licensure Program (Massachusetts Only). Learn how the arts can have a positive impact on student achievement.
This arts-rich Master of Education (M.Ed.) program is responsive to the unique needs of young children, as well as cultural, linguistic, economic, and social diversity, and different learning styles. Bring out the creative and intellectual abilities of all PreK-2 learners—and yourself—and learn how the arts can effect positive student achievement. Coursework will give you a foundation in arts education and arts and human development, as well as in early childhood content areas, assessment, and special needs.
