M.A. in Education

Format: Campus

Program Description:

True to our Lasallian tradition of providing educational opportunities where they best serve students, Saint Mary’s has made the M.A. in Education available in Wisconsin for over twenty-five years. The M.A. in Education (Wisconsin):

-Prepares you to apply for the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Certification Process (NBPTS) or the Wisconsin Master Educator Assessment Process (WMEAP)

-Is a practitioner-centered program, offered close to home in a blended format with Saturday and summer classes

-Can be completed within 2 years (for most), but allows you to take up to 5 years

-Offers small class sizes in cohorts of 10 to 20 other educators

This program encourages the integration of personal and professional experiences. A capstone activity involves the preparation and presentation of a comprehensive research- and performance-based portfolio. Building through courses and independent studies, the capstone demonstrates the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of an effective master educator. The portfolio may serve as a solid starting point for teachers seeking their Wisconsin Master Educator License. This program is approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI).
